Event Description:

Two-page newsletter with descriptive and visual scheme analysis per day of different social brain contexts on famous movies. Examples of themes in the discussion about the chosen movies: history of movies, the neuroscience behind the context, physiology, neuroanatomy, mental disorders, neuroethics, brain-machine interface, anti-social behavior, brain function, movies inspired in neuroscience advances and techniques, and memories.

One movie per day:

A Clockwork Orange: anti-social behavior and its physiopathology, decision making, aversive conditioning, brain function, crimes, neuroethics.

A Beautiful Mind: schizophrenia, symptoms, its physiopathology, brain function, how psychosis is produced by the brain, and where.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: how memories work, physiology, where they are formed in the brain by each location, and why we shouldn’t delete our memories, neuroethics, social relationships.

Upgrade: brain function, artificial intelligence, brain-machine interface, behavior, disease, neurophysiology.

In the Portuguese language so the general public can undestand the everyday neuroscience of movies.
