Feedback & Keys to Success

It is very important because of the Dana and SBNeC autorizations and the Brain is always an atual subject. Along the years the local people have more interest in Brain aspects information. Nowadays we have a optional discipline discussing cognition, smartphone apps and games for undergraduate students from computer teachers formation course.
