Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The idea was to promote neuroscience, talking about the social brain in 5 different movies covering different aspects and the most recent evidence in the field. Each day of the brain awareness week was special for a film covered. The objective was to make scientific communication to the general public. The feedback was positive. However, each movie generated a lot of neuroscience information to explain, so instead of journaling, the next time, I think it might be appropriate to do a short video.
