All about the brain

Hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and members of the public discovered the latest in brain research during Brain Awareness Week held November 6–11 on campus.

The week’s highlights included talks by experts in the field as well as research presentations by students, faculty, and alums. The keynote lecture featured American playwright and author Lydia Diamond, who explored “Brain, Race and Theater.”

Brain Awareness Week is organized by Synapse—the neuroscience student organization—in collaboration with cosponsors Nu Rho Psi, Psi Chi, First-Year Studies Program, Gates Center for Leadership and Development, the Mohr Student Center Committee, Center for Chicago Programs, and the Chicago Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience.
