EBRL at Brain Blast 2022

EBRL had a fun time meeting you at Brain Blast 2022!

Brain Blast is a free educational event for kids held every year by the Vanderbilt Brain Institute. Every year children K-8th grade get to meet and learn from real brain scientists about the brain and we always enjoy meeting everyone and teaching them about our lab and what we do at EBRL. This year Mr. Commodore himself came for a visit and even practiced laying still for an MRI! If you’d like to come to next year’s Brain Blast and participate in this free event, please check back with our site regularly and with the Vanderbilt Brain Institute’s calendar. Brain Blast occurs every year in March.

 

 

Brain Blast 2019: The Aftermath

Brain Blast 2019 was an outstanding success for EBRL!

The team was there, bright and early before all of the patrons, setting up our stations, a fun journey through the reading brain. We brought our handy-dandy “portable MRI” so the kids could all see what it was like to be a part of one of our research studies, and played they scanner noises so people could know what an MRI sounded like. Then, they got to color their way through each part of the reading network, and play a fun game for each part! At the very end, they got to even make their own reading network. The day was filled with fun and learning about the brain and the visitors never stopped!
