Brain Awareness Week ~ March 14-20, 2011

Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research. Every March, BAW unites the efforts of universities, hospitals, patient groups, government agencies, schools, service organizations, and professional associations around the world in a week-long celebration of the brain.  Founded and coordinated by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and European Dana Alliance for the Brain, BAW’s sixteenth annual  celebration will take place from March 14-20, 2011.

This week, Share It Forward gives you an opportunity to test your knowledge of the Brain, with our “Brain Quiz”.   How much do you know about the way our brain develops?   Each day this week, we will post a different question.   Choose “True”, “False” or “Don’t Know” for each statement, and then click on the link for the answer.  

Today’s question: 

“Basic brain connections are laid down

before birth.”      

 – True?
