About This Event

Event Description:

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well” Virginia Wolf.
Nutrition is important, but it is even more for brain function. Our brain, like any other part of our body, needs to be fed. Depending on the nutrients we receive, our activity will be different. The composition of each meal has a direct effect on the production of chemical signals in the brain. These substances, responsible for the transmission of information throughout the nervous system, are called neurotransmitters and can be modulated in part by our diet. This event will invite to a reflection on food from the medical, social, cultural, recreational point of view and as biological need for survival.
