"Students Get to Touch Real Brains at Interactive Brain Fair at Mount Sinai Hospital" - Michelle Charlesworth and Heather Harkins
In celebration of Brain Awareness Week, Michelle Charlesworth stopped by Mount Sinai's 7th Annual Brain Fair. Open to ages two to 86, students and families enjoyed an afternoon of interactive exhibits, facts, and fun to celebrate Brain Awareness Week. "Kids can walk through a giant exhibit of the brain where they will learn things about the inner workings of the brain as they are going through it," said Eric J. Nestler, MD, PhD, Director of the Friedman Brain Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "The brain is the coolest organ in the body! It determines how we think, how we remember, who we are as people," said Dr. Nestler. This annual fair brings hundreds of visitors every year to educate the public youth.
