Using Your Brain
- The Society for Neuroscience‘s annual Brain Awareness Video Contest has already chosen a winner, but ten videos still have a chance to win $500 and recognition at the society’s New Orleans conference with the People’s Choice Award. These videos were created by scientists to communicate their knowledge of the brain, and voting is open to the general public.
In my personal favourite, Using Your Brain, Montreal neuroscientist Kenneth Stephen Dyson works with his sons Taj and Deszmo (12 and 6 years old) to illustrate facts and myths about the brain along with some basics of neuroanatomy. Using a simple and clever animation technique that anyone can do at home, the family team made a charming, entertaining, and informative video. I’m sure they had fun creating it, and it shows.
See all ten nominees here, and vote now for your choice.
