Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
1. Education through culture – at the edge of the pedagogy and heutagogy. This was a dialogue with the principal of an „old but new” school, a remarkable personality, who is interested in bridging, in her school, education with neuroscience. 2. „The Rag and Bone Shop”, wrote by Veronica O’Keane – a window to the brain and memories. As a translator in Romanian of this book, I highly recommend it as a “Bible” for any educator. 3. Art as a language of the brain – the connection between arts and neuro-diversities: this was a dialogue with 2 experts, one in neuroaesthetics, and the other, in antropology and psycho-analysis. The main goal of all these 3 dialogues was the awareness about the necessity of connecting science with art in our daily life, in order to understand ourselves – both as individuals and as species. In my point of view, knowing (or being aware of, at least) the neural mechanisms which support each thought or emotion can help in improving our behaviour and relationships.

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Our school community is the first to benefit, the EOTAS educational alternative is built on neuroscientific research so any good information is a plus.
Did/do you like our Facebook page?
Was the information provided on Facebook useful?
Yes, very helpful. Perhaps the connection between education and neuroscience could be more approached…. I know this is a sensible but sensitive subject, though.
