Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We organized 3 days symposia which had been pre-recorded and broadcasted through YouTube. Each day, we invited 3 famous neuroscientists. Day 1 covers basic neuroscience including neurogenomics, the role of astrocyte, and learning and memory. Day 2 has more focus on medical aspects. Day 3 focused on neuro-engineering perspectives like Brain-machine interface. In addition, we had a one day live Q&A session using the Zoom platform. We invited 12 high school students for the live session. Because of Covid-19, all the events were virtual.
