The human brain is the most remarkable structure in the biological universe.  It regulates body functions and controls our thoughts and emotions.  Brain and nervous system disorders, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, epilepsy, autism, drug addictions and depression, unfortunately afflict millions of people.  Neuroscience is providing solutions to these serious problems.
The J. P. Scott Center for Neuroscience, Mind and Behavior , the Department of Psychology and the Department of Biological Sciences at Bowling Green State University are proud to sponsor these public lectures on brain and nervous system disorders during Brain Awareness Week.
