Approximate Number of People Reached:


Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We offered 5 talks in facebook live, in which we discuss about cognition, aversive memories, neuropharmacology of behavioral disorders in dementia, and general knowing about the brain for children. We reached around 17k people, with our publications, however, we had just 400 live viewers. The people that watched the talks were interested and ask questions about the topics. We believe that even when we had few spectators, the impact was important, since there was interaction between the speakers and the spectators.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

We believe that because of the pandemia there are a large list of virtual events, we need to return to normal life to have physical events, instead of virtual.
