Community Outreach

Neuroscience grad student outreach booth at Davis Farmer's Market
Led by Professors Karen Zito and Diasynou Fioravante, the UC Davis Center for Neuroscience organizes a variety of community outreach activities during Brain Awareness Week.


Elementary and High School Presentations
Several times a year, our outreach teams set up a morning or afternoon of small presentations and activities at elementary and high schools in the Northern California / Sacramento region. Students visit different stations where they can learn about brain anatomy (complete with brains for students to hold and dissect), how optical illusions work, and basic concepts of neuroscience.
