About This Event
Brain studies, advances, benefits and its relationship with the coronavirus will be in evidence in the “Brain Week 2021: Covid-19”, which carries out virtual actions on the Museum of Life networks between March 22 and 27. The public will browse topics from neurosciences and the effects of coronavirus on the brain through activities and content shared on the Museum of Life’s social networks. There are already more than 300 studies worldwide that show a prevalence of neurological abnormalities in patients with Covid-19.
On the 25th, researchers Waldir Ribeiro, Clarice Ramiro, Miguel de Oliveira and Suzi Aguiar share an article on cerebral fog and Covid-19, and the public can check it out here on the Museum of Life website.
Continuing the activities, Lívia Valentin, PhD in neuropsychology from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo (FMUSP) and Harvard Medical School, talks about how the brain can be attacked by Covid, during a chat with the educator of the Museum of Vida Paula Bonatto and journalist Renata Fontanetto, on the 26th, at 4 pm, straight from YouTube at the Museum of Life. The Realejo Cerebral also reaches the networks of the Museum with curiosities about the main organ and center of the nervous system throughout the week, along with Click and cards that address the theme of the brain and Covid-19. To close Brain Week, the series “The Brain and the Senses” debuts on Saturday (27), which addresses the theme and the relationship with the 05 senses.
