Brain Awareness Month


Each year, the Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience spreads the word about brain research to schools and the public. We coordinate visits from neuroscientists to Atlanta-area elementary, middle, and high schools, reaching thousands of students. Although we started out concentrating our efforts in March, which has been declared Brain Awareness Month, we now fill visitor requests year-round due to high demand. Interested teachers can request a classroom visit any time of the year.

The Atlanta-based Center for Behavioral Neuroscience also sponsors an annual Brains Rule! Neuroscience Exposition. In partnership with Zoo Atlanta, CBN reaches thousands during the spring Exposition, the largest public education event of its type in the country.
