Awareness Day offers a chance to entertain the brain

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A special event at the Jonesboro Public Library Saturday gave those who attended a chance to entertain their brain.

The 7th Annual Brain Awareness Day is an international event and offers hands on activities to show the way the brain works. Well over 100 people showed up to try and figure out the bodies most complex organ.

Dr. Amy Pearce says those who come out have the chance to really discover the brain. She says they ask the public to come and learn about the neurons, or brain cells, and all of the different parts of the brain and their specialized functions.

Along with the hands on events, there were also two guest speakers that were geared toward adults.
