Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

Brain Awareness Week 2017 Lima, Perú was an excellent event to reach many people interested in brain evolution, care, research and application in biomedical and social sciences. This was the opportunity to give basics, middle and advanced knowlegdes about human brain in our society. The conferences were excellent and reached the goals in the assistant people because the speakers was selected of master in neuroscience of Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. The Labtour gave the opportunity to general public to visit the Neuroscience and Behavior Laboratory of Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia to know the work made about neuroscience research in Perú. We hope organize this events every year in our country with the proffesional support of great institutions like Sonep, Neuroscience and Behavior Laboratory of Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia and Neurozoom.
