If so, you may have a growing interest in the field of neuroscience! Consider competing in the Saskatchewan Brain Bee!
The Saskatchewan Brain Bee enables students to learn about the brain and careers in neuroscience. The winner of the Saskatchewan Brain Bee and each Local Bee is invited to attend the National Brain Bee competition in his or her own country, and the winner of each National Bee is invited to compete in the International Brain Bee Championship.
Brain Bees test one’s knowledge of the human brain including such topics as intelligence, emotions, memory, sleep, vision, hearing, sensations, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, schizophrenia, epilepsy, depression, addictions and brain research. The local competitions are in the Q&A format based on material from a book (Neuroscience: Science of the Brain) that is freely downloadable from the internet.
When: May 9 2015
Where: Room A204 (A-wing) Health Sciences Building, University of Saskatchewan, 107 Wiggins Rd.
