Brain Awareness Week (BAW) March 14 - 20

You are only as good as your brain and therefore need to invest in it should be a priority.

IMPORTANCE OF UNDERSTANDING THE HUMAN BRAIN 

The complexity of the human brain and its importance to one’s general health and wellbeing are well known. Along with your cognitive health, which regulates thinking, learning, and remembering, the brain also influences how you move, feel, and perceive. Good brain health can be broadly defined as a combination of best brain integrity, mental and cognitive performance, and the lack of evident neurological illnesses. The path towards health and longevity is paved by maintaining a healthy brain throughout one’s life.

NEUROSCIENCE ADVANCEMENTS, RESEARCH AND THEIR EFFICACY

There is a great lack of knowledge among common people about Neuroscience advancements, research, and their efficacy. Faith healing and superstitions often cloud minds instead of identifying and addressing any brain health issue at early stages. Therefore, there is great need to enlighten discussions in this aspect among families and educational institutions. Creating parent and peer support groups to ward off fear and stigma associated with brain health challenges are the need of the hour.

BRAIN EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY THROUGH BAW 

March 14–20 is designated as Brain Awareness Week (BAW), a global initiative to raise public awareness of the advancements and advantages of brain research. BAW was established by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives as a worldwide initiative to raise public awareness of the advancements and advantages of brain research. Every March, the world’s neuroscientists, educators, students, and brain enthusiasts join to participate in interactive events and activities that celebrate the brain. It was established to inform the general public on the advancements in brain research as well as the prevention, identification, and management of many brain disorders like Alzheimer’s, ADHD, dyslexia, Parkinson’s disease, etc. 

THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF BAW 

Brain Awareness Week therefore serves as a reminder that as we learn more about how the brain develops and works, we will have a better understanding of how to maintain brain health over the course of our lifetimes. Additionally, it is hoped that BAW programs will encourage youngsters to become aware of their brain health and how to take care of it from an early age as the burden of brain dysfunction, neurological illnesses, and the demands on medical resources increase as people age.
