Natasha Dury Shereen Shabnam

During June 2013, Bahrain Science Centre, a part of the Ministry of Social Development will host various activities under the theme ‘Brain & Memory’. A series of displays, talks and competitions will be held to celebrate this theme with highlights including ‘Brain Gym’ and ‘Brain Olympics’

The activities of this month will allow visitors to get the deep knowledge of how brain functions from the process of storing information, its weight, how many neurons are there, and how much energy dose the brain use?

Memory is headquartered in the brain and unlike other body organs, such as the heart (which is a pump), liver (chemical factory) or the lungs (bellows), your brain is ‘you’ and cannot be transplanted. Learn more by visiting the Science centre during the month of June.
