Students demonstrated their knowledge about the brain and neuroscience, including fascinating topics involving intelligence, memory, emotions, sensations, movement, stress, aging, sleep, addiction, and more. The winner of the 2013 London Brain Bee, Melanie Colvin of Clarke Road Secondary School, will go on to compete in the Canadian Institutes of Health Research National Brain Bee at McMaster University on June 1, 2013. We wish Melanie all the best at the Nationals and hope she can go on to represent Canada at the International Brain Bee in Vienna, Austria in September.
