Did you know that this is Brain Awareness Week?

In 1990 President Bush declared the 90s the Decade of the Brain: "to enhance public awareness of the benefits to be derived from brain research" through "appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities." In support of that initiative The DANA Foundation launched Brain Awareness Week in 1996 as a small initiative in the USA. Although the Decade of the Brain is over, Brain Awareness Week has continued and today it has become international with events and activities being run all over the world..

My Brain Hurts

Fans of Monty Python will remember the Mr Gumby character who regularly appeared complaining that his brain hurt. In real life, reaching over-load and feeling that your brain hurts is a real sensation.
