I focus on brain power for this theme. My alma mater is celebrating Brain Day.

Brain Awareness Week 2012 is approaching! We have an action packed week of research presentations and demonstrations planned for all ages.

Brain Day will be held on Saturday 17th March, and will feature neuroscientists and clinicians from the Centre for Brain Research talking about the latest research updates, as well as community groups and science demonstrations. It is the biggest event of its kind in New Zealand!

This year look out for our exciting brain scan event, called Mind Reading.

This year the theme for Auckland Brain Day 2012 is 'brain fitness'. An exciting range of lectures, discussions and workshops are planned to keep your brain in top condition!

Leading scientists and clinicians from the Centre for Brain Research will present the latest information on topical brain issues. Discussions with community experts provide the opportunity to discover practical tips on living with brain disorders. Meanwhile interactive workshops and hands-on demonstrations will open your eyes to the wonders of the brain.

Brain Day offers something for all ages. We aim to provide information on the myriad of brain disorders affecting people throughout the lifespan. Brain health is important too, so come along to find out how to keep your best asset working to its optimum ability!
