  1. A story in the Washington Post describes a major investment by Betsy DeVos. The new secretary of education and her family have a significant investment in a “brain training” company, Neurocore. This company describes a therapeutic approach using “neuro-feedback” to “train your brain” in overcoming conditions ranging from ADHD and anxiety to autism and depression. The story states that there is no evidence that she plans to introduce this approach to the nation’s schools, but she has promoted it as an approach to treat students with special needs in an educational setting. Stay tuned. A quote from the article states; “At the very least, DeVos appears to be dangerously naive about what it takes to help people learn - especially children with special needs.” What do you think?

    BAW 2016 video contest

    Hi all - It’s that time again! The call is out for the 2016 Brain Awareness Video Contest! The winner will receive $1000 and a trip to SfN 2016 in Chicago. All you have to do is create an educational video about the brain for the 2016 Brain Awareness Video Contest that demonstrates a neuroscience concept through animation, song, skit, or any other creative approach. Be creative! Anyone can enter, and you can work on a video by yourself or in a group. Top videos will be featured on SfN.org and BrainFacts.org and will be recognized at Neuroscience 2016. Submissions are due June 16 — start working on your video today! Videos must be submitted by an SfN member. Find a member near you with the Find A Neuroscientist Program at BrainFacts.org. Watch last year’s winning videos and learn more at BrainFacts.org/bavc. If you have any questions about the contest, please email baw@sfn.org.
  3. Hi all - Have you heard about the Brain Awareness Week Video contest? The first place winner will receive $1000 plus travel to the annual meeting and 2 nights lodging; there are cash prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place winners and the People’s Choice award. If you’ve never watched one of these videos, I highly encourage you to check out the archives. Lots of great videos from people at all stages of their neuroscience career (even high schoolers). All you need is a good idea, a camera, and a member of SfN to sponsor your entry. If you know of anyone who is good with video, or if you’re affiliated with a student group, you can offer up your expertise and can sponsor a video. All details, plus previous winners can be found here: http://www.brainfacts.org/bavc. Break a neurons! Leanne Boucher, PhD
