Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

12 March 2021 – Brief description: The International Research Center for Cognitive Applied Neuroscience (IrcCAN), Faculty of Psychology, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan, Italy offered a virtual webinar dedicated to the discussion of the challenges and methodological implications that the use of online settings and the necessary remote planning of research and intervention activities have entailed in the field of experimentation and practice in applied neuroscience. Different experiences related, in particular, to experimental activities, assessment, neurocognitive enhancement, and neurorehabilitation have been presented. 13 March 2021 – Brief description: The International Research Center for Cognitive Applied Neuroscience (IrcCAN), Faculty of Psychology, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan, organized a Neuroscientific Digital Room to discover a new tool for testing sensitivity to new behavioral addictions thanks to a battery of neuropsychological tests delivered online. This new neuropsicological battery has been recently validated. It emphasizes strengths and weaknesses at the level of cognitive functioning and related executive functions involved in high-level cognitive processes and decision. The battery can be used to promote behavioral addiction prevention in different age groups. During the day, participants had the chance to discover, learn about and try this new innovative tool for screening behavioral addictions, both through the intervention of experts and through interactive laboratories (Neuroscientific Digital Room).
