fresh new brain
Back by Popular Demand!
Coincidentally, this week is Brain Awareness Week, and here in Eugene it’s hosted by the Brain Development Lab at the University of Oregon. There’s lots of free brain-themed events! If you’re in the area, why not attend the FREE Brain Awareness Expo at the WOW Hall on Saturday, March 10 from 1 to 4 pm? I’ll see you there.
BRAINS ARE AWESOME
UPDATE 3.10.12: Nate and I went and I got to HOLD A REAL HUMAN BRAIN IN MY HANDS! Well, half of one anyway. And it was pickled in an icky chemical so I had to wear gloves. It belonged to a little old lady! I also held a sheep brain and a dog brain. And a guy was poking at a cow eyeball so we could see how it worked. And they made a cockroach leg dance to the beat of a song.
And my picture might be in the Oregon Daily Emerald!
Gawd I am such a little kid. :)
