National Brain Bee: Several Indian-Americans in top 10

 

Atlantan Ayush Setty (pictured left), the 2018 Georgia Brain Bee champion, participated in the 11th National Brain Bee competition in Baltimore. He came in sixth.

Winners from 37 states took part in the national contest that tested their knowledge of the human brain on topics such as intelligence, emotions, memory, sleep, vision, hearing, sensations, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, addictions, and brain research. The competition also involved a neuroanatomy laboratory practical exam with real human brains, patient diagnosis with patient actors, neurohistology, brain MRI imaging identification, and orals.

Akhil Kondepudi of Missouri was declared the national champion and will represent the U.S. in the World Bee Championship this July. Hemanth Asirvatham of Minnesota came in second, and the third place went to Shehej Bindra of New Jersey. The fifth, seventh, and eighth place winners were also Indian-Americans.
