Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
Our experience was very exciting. We received many students and teachers from private and public school from our state (Rio de Janeiro). We had a lot of attractive activities as open lab, neurocine as well as public discussions about brain and behavioural. Our aim this year was regarding the “brain and aging” , and it was very good to discuss the theme with youth people. We also had the Neuroscience olympiad to high school students and it was amazing! We believe we reach the goal that was bring science closely to society.
