Careful look: James Alaelua-Waterhouse has a good look at a model of the brain. When the Neurological Foun- dation and the University of Auckland decided to raise aware- ness about brain health among young people they thought they'd be targeting secondary school students. But we had a huge response from primary schools,'' PhD researcher Chantelle Fourie says. She was one of three researchers who visited Kaurilands School in Titirangi on Monday to share their specialist knowledge of the human brain with a group of year 5 students. Teacher Kristin Joy says her class will be studying the brain for the entire first term to coincide with Brain Awareness Week on March 14 to 20. Miss Fourie passed around slices of brain tissue enclosed in perspex and showed images illus- trating the difference between healthy and diseased brains. I study the hippocampus -- the part of the brain responsible for remembering stuff,'' Miss Fourie told the students. As people get older the hippo- campus doesn't work so well.'' Post-doctoral researcher Valerie Anderson's model of the brain drew gasps from the pupils, who were keen to examine its various sections. She showed MRI images of the head, illustrating the size of the brain within the skull. PhD student Jane Evans com- pleted the trio with a discussion on different types of brain cells. The key message was that healthy food, exercise, ongoing learning and plenty of sleep keep brain cells healthy. Brain Day is a free open day of lectures, workshops and activities about the brain at Auckland Uni- versity on March 19. Visit www. brainweek.co.nz.
