The sixth Brain Expo at Marshall will featured more than 25 interactive stations where children explored how the various parts of their nervous system are responsible for how their bodies function and learn how healthy lifestyle choices lead to better brain health. Activities included testing their reflexes, playing memory games, coloring their own "brain hats" and building brain cell-shaped key chains.

More than 200 Marshall students and faculty from the university's College of Science and Psychology Department, as well as the Department of Neuroscience at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, oversaw the activities. The St. Mary's Medical Center also was on hand with a station about brain and spinal cord safety.

The event is part of Brain Awareness Week, an annual global effort founded in 1996 by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives. The Brain Expo at Marshall was founded by Dr. Nadja Spitzer and Dr. Brian Antonsen, both of whom are neuroscientists and assistant professors in the university's Department of Biological Sciences.
