Brain Awareness Week Open House at the MNI

As part of Montreal's Brain Awareness Week, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital – The Neuro opens its doors to 60 elementary students. The students will have the chance to participate in fun, hands-on workshops designed to captivate young students, where they will learn about the brain and how it is studied. In plain language and with plenty of humour, The Neuro’s researchers will take students on a trip through the nervous system. In a workshop on brain anatomy, students will have a chance to observe and even touch a real human brain. Students will get to see some of the most sophisticated neuroscience machines - magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) used for diagnostics and for scientific discovery; magnetoencephalography (MEG) for mapping the brain’s activity, and more. The day culminates in a dynamic keynote lecture designed to both inform and inspire the students.


March 12
