"Brain Awareness Week has facilitated our understanding of the intricacies of the brain … The impact can't be quantified, but many communities’ mental health has improved drastically since its inception. Also, many young folks have expressed interest in pursuing careers in neuroscience."

"Brain Awareness Week is inspiring for students who are learning about the beauty and intricacy of science. My favorite part about it is when students realize that science is fun and that they, too, can be scientists!"

"We have organized Brain Awareness Week in Eskişehir-Turkey since 1999 … The feedback we receive at the end of each event motivates us. It is a great feeling to make new plans for Brain Awareness Week each year and to meet with different children and young people who have the same excitement about the brain!"
