Neuroscientists hit the road
As part of the Brain Awareness Week 2023, the Hellenic Society for Neuroscience is organizing a tribute to the brain sciences from February 28th to March 31st, aiming to present scientific findings about the brain’s function, perception of the world around us, decision making, emotions, and memory in a comprehensible way to children and adults.
These activities will be held in many different cities and regions in Greece. Part of these activities will take place in Athens, Efxeinoupoli, Almyros, and Kyparissia (attached posters), and will include, depending on the age group, painting, construction as well as video projection of experimental approaches in neuroscience and participation in experiments. A group of neuroscientists will present to students, through educational workshops, the basic principles of brain function and discuss the biology of emotions, sleep, perception, memory, and learning.
The first event in the context of these actions will take place on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 18.00, in the “Mikis Theodorakis” Park. In this event, the Hellenic Society for Neuroscience together with the Athener Schule school, under the auspices of the Municipality of Vrilissia, will organize a series of lectures by neuroscientists on brain development, memory, and Alzheimer’s disease. These lectures will be open to the general public and aimed toward a lay audience.
