UT Arlington team uses quick thinking to bring home title at 14th annual Brain Bowl

UT Arlington's team showed superior brain power and came home with the trophy at the 14th annual Intercollegiate Brain Bowl.
The Brain Bowl sponsored each spring by the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio (UTSCSA), is a neuroscience quiz show in which three teams of undergraduates from universities across Texas compete for prizes, bragging rights, and the Brain Bowl trophy.
The Brain Bowl is a quiz show which tests the knowledge of undergraduate neuroscience students. Questions range from relatively easy to very difficult, covering fields of neuroscience research including neuro physiology, neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, drugs and the brain, and the brain and behavior. Modeled after the 1960s quiz show 'University Challenge', the Brain Bowl includes three rounds of short answer questions that get more difficult with each round. The final round is a complex 'challenge' question, where teams can wager points they have accumulated in the previous rounds.
