To celebrate this quite-challenging Thanksgiving, here are five fun brain teasers and games that readers have enjoyed the most this year so far. It is always good to learn more about (and appreciate) that most precious resource we all (yes, all) have up there!

#3. Check out this classic attention experiment
#4. What do you know about mental self-rotation?

Every March, Brain Awareness Week (BAW) unites the efforts of partner organizations worldwide in a celebration of the brain for people of all ages. Activities are limited only by the organizers’ imaginations and include open days at neuroscience labs; exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; social media campaigns; displays at libraries and community centers; classroom workshops; and more.
This year BAW will take place March 16–22th, 2020.
