Brain Awareness Week 2000

Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a nationwide effort organized by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and the Society for Neuroscience to promote the public and personal benefits of brain research. The official week for BAW is March 13-19, 2000, but any week is a good time to get involved.
