Brain Scan PSA Emphasizes the Importance of Research, Memories

From Vancouver-based agency Rethink and Untitled Films director Steve Gordon comes a cerebral PSA to support “Brain Awareness Week” and the British Columbia Alzheimer Society

Commemorated each March, Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a global campaign seeking to give publicity to the progress and benefits of brain research. In “Brain Scan” we’re taken through a series vignettes or “memories” through a filter of neural-imaging.
