Reach out with the VBI
The faculty and students of the Vanderbilt Brain Institute are involved in several community service activities throughout the year. Brain Blast is our annual signature event, every March during Brain Awareness Month. Our faculty, fellows and graduate students teach at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Vanderbilt University, and also visit public and private schools in the Middle Tennessee area to talk about neuroscience and give kids an opportunity to hold, examine and dissect a sheep brain with their own hands. Plus, we reach out to the undergraduate community with our Neuroscience Extravaganza!
