More than 500 people attended "Brain Blast," a free family fun day March 5 at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

The event featured 35 different ways to learn about the brain, guided by Vanderbilt neuroscience graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty members and other volunteers. More than 100 neuroscientists participated.

Brain Blast, co-sponsored by the Vanderbilt Neuroscience Student Organization and the Vanderbilt Brain Institute, is part of "Brainstorm 2011," a month-long series of public events about brain research.
