Happy Brain Awareness Week (11-17 March 2024).

It is never too early to begin thinking about brain health. In Australia, one out of every fourteen persons suffering from dementia is under the age of 65. For more information about dementia in Australia, see https://www.aihw.gov.au/reports/dementia/dementia-in-aus/contents/about

Brain Awareness Week strives to raise public awareness and support for brain research. As part of this worldwide campaign, the Queensland Brain Institute will hold its second public lecture to encourage the community to learn more about their brain and how understanding this complex organ may help them live better lives.
