The brain is a fascinating organ,” says Nestor Matthews, associate professor of psychology. “It’s worth a lifetime of study.”

Denison's family-friendly Brain Bee is an annual competition that tests high school students’ knowledge about the brain. “But don’t be too scared of it,” says Matthews who directs the contest. “We provide a study guide on our website.” This year’s Brain Bee takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1, in the Lecture Hall of the Burton D. Morgan Center (150 Ridge Road). Participation is free and open to the public, but participants must be registered on the Brain Bee website.
All participants will receive a free Brain Bee T-shirt and are eligible to earn money for themselves and a neuroscience-related charity when they answer questions correctly. The winner will earn a travel award to the U.S. National Brain Bee competition at the University of Maryland this March.
“The Brain Bee is an entertaining and informative way to introduce our high school students to this everyday marvel.”
