The International Brain Bee (IBB) is a neuroscience competition for high school students around the globe. Its purpose is to motivate young men and women to learn about the human brain, and to inspire them to enter careers in the fundamental and clinical brain sciences. The world needs future clinicians and researchers to treat and find cures for more than 1000 neurological and psychological disorders. Students who perform noticeably well in Brain Bee will have an advantage in their future academic and career development in Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Medical Sciences and thus will be the next promising generation of neuroscientists!
