We have planned a number of fun posts, starting tomorrow, to celebrate Brain Awareness Week (March 10-16th). We hope you will enjoy them.
Let me share a taste of a few articles you will find here during the week:
– Dr. Adrian Preda, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UC Irvine School of Medicine, will help us exercise our brains by challenging us to exercise more…our bodies.
– We will release our report The State of the Brain Fitness Software Market 2008 on Tuesday March 11th, sharing its 10 Highlights. This is a project where we have spent many many energies over the last 9 months…so we are happy to finally be able to deliver it!
– An article by UCSF’s Gregory Kellet (who wrote this great article on why managing stress is important for our brains) helping us identify ways to precisely do that.
– An in-depth interview with Eric Jensen, brain-based education expert and author of this great recent article.
– Eduwonkette, a superb (and anonymous) education blogger, will expand the conversation by asking, “Do we, as a society, have a clear goal of what the K12 system is supposed to accomplish?”
So, please bookmark our URL, or subscribe to our newsletter (above) or join our blog RSS feed.
And, of course, visit the Brain Awareness Week’s International Calendar of events to find if there are some stimulating events near you. If you live in Washington DC, take a look at the “Partners in Education” activities organized by the National Museum of Health and Medicine at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
