The Youth for Youth edition of My Curious Brain was a successful event, marking the fourth edition that was hosted by the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, Department of Psychology, University of Bucharest, Romania. The event was organized with the contribution of the students from the Laboratory of Cognitive Clinical Sciences from the University of Bucharest and lead by Dr. Ioana Podina (http://laboratorstiintecognitiveclinice.ro/). The audience was comprised predominantly of students. Hence, the name Youth for Youth. The event brought together specialists from various fields (psychologists, researchers, experts in neuroscience, biology, and ethology). My Curious Brain was organized on three levels dedicated to (a) cognitive science, (b) neuroscience and (c) ethology. The variety offered by the event attracted approximately 400 interested individuals. Thus, My Curious Brain has achieved its goal of bringing information about the most important advances in cognitive science and neuroscience. It was visible online via its dedicated Facebook page – totaling 1707 likes & 1723 followers. News about the event were promoted on the radio (ex: www.rfi.ro), on the web page of the University of Bucharest and the Faculty of Educational Sciences and Psychology. The materials provided by the www.dana.org were used as template for the event’s promotional materials. Given the increasing visibility of “My Curious Brain” from the first to the Youth for Youth edition that was the fourth, we can definitely state that the participants have a better understanding of what FENS represents.
