World Brain Day World Brain Day is an annual observance celebrated on July 22. It was instituted by the World Federation of Neurology to raise awareness of the importance of brain health.

The World Federation of Neurology (WFN) is an international association of national neurological societies that was formed in Brussels, Belgium in 1957. Currently it represents over 100 professional societies of neurologists in all regions of the world. It's main goals are to promote neurological education and training worldwide and to foster neurological health.

Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the nervous system, including brain disorders, as the brain is the main organ of the human nervous system. The human brain is one of the greatest mysteries of nature, scientists still cannot fully explain the complex relationship between the brain and the mind. No wonder brain health is paid so much attention to.

World Brain Day is an awareness event dedicated to brain health. It aims to educate people about brain health and most common brain diseases, Each year, WFN picks a new theme for the day. For example, World Brain Day 2015 focused on epilepsy. That year, WFC partnered with the World Health Organization, the International Bureau for Epilepsy, and the International League Against Epilepsy.
