I just watched an entertaining video about congenital anosmia, the inability to smell. It was the winning video submitted to BrainFacts.org in their annual Brain Awareness Video Contest. You can check out all of the top videos there, plus submit your own for next year’s challenge. Getting people to watch these videos shows how amazing and complex our brain is, and how even the smallest problem can have large effects, as well as bringing awareness to little-known conditions so people can empathize, or get the help they need. For example, in the smell-less video, people without this sense need to be extra careful about cooking dangers.
The best way to learn about something is to do a creative project around it. So consider entering for next year! This could be for a biology class, or a family activity to explore a condition of someone you know.
