Columbia University Medical Center

Community Brain Expo

School students arrived at the New York State Psychiatric Institute’s Kolb Annex on the Columbia University Medical Center campus March 12 to participate in the annual Community Brain Expo, cosponsored by the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University.

Students, parents, and teachers were invited to learn about the brain through demonstrations, experiments, and activities for all ages.

“Kids and adults alike are fascinated by the three-pound organ that rules the body, so we were eager to engage people about their brain,” says Kelley Remole, PhD, director of neuroscience outreach for the Zuckerman Institute.

The community brain expo was part of Brain Awareness Week in New York City.
