Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We have developed a cycle of lectures with diverse themes to reach a wider range and diversity of participants. In all the lectures the number of participants was greater than the capacity of the audience, although this was not a problem. The topics addressed to gender diversity and education were the most debated and should result in the holding of multidisciplinary forums on such topics.
