About This Class

The Brain: Up Close with the McKnight Brain Institute!
It’s Brain Awareness Week.  Have you ever wondered why you see color, or how it is that you are able to smell? How we recall past memories and what happens during a brain injury?  Many more questions will be answered with fun labs with our friends from the McKnight Brain Institute at UF, and be prepared for mind bending brain tricks and illusions.
