The brain is the most complex, important organ in the body and local high school students who want to learn more about it, or show off their knowledge of neuroscience, can compete in the annual Brain Bee. It's an all-day competition held each year in Vermont. The winner gets to go to the national Brain Bee in Baltimore, Md.

Lisa Bernardin, organizer for the Brain Bee in Vermont, and Tim Gallagher, a high school student in Stowe and competitor, joined VPR to talk about the upcoming competition.
