SOUTH TEXAS BRAIN BEE

The South Texas Brain Bee, sponsored by the Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration Association and UT Health San Antonio is an official Chapter of the International Brain Bee, the pre-eminent worldwide program motivating young women and men to learn about the human brain.  These events are designed to capture the imagination, and inspire students to pursue neuroscience careers in order to help treat and find cures for neurological and psychological disorders.  


WHAT IS THE BRAIN BEE?


The South Texas Brain Bee is a live Q and A competition that tests the neuroscience knowledge of high school students.  Young men and women compete to determine who is the "best brain" on such topics as intelligence, memory, emotions, sensation, movement, stress, aging, sleep, addictions, Alzheimer's and stroke.  Participants can study this material by using www.BrainFacts.org.  


The winner of the South Texas Brain Bee will advance to the USA Brain Bee Championship, trip sponsored by FTLDA, to be held at Northeast Ohio Medical University in April 2020.
