For another year, Barcelona is taking part in World Brain Awareness Week (from 15th to 22nd March), which is being celebrated in over 72 countries, with all kinds of activities to educate all sections of the public about the efforts being made in the study of the human brain.
The programme includes activities aimed not just at the general public but at education centres too, and will feature talks, demonstrations, round tables and shows.
These will deal with topics such as musical genes, the effects of cannabis, robotic brains, conscience and the mind, and neuroeconomics.
We are gaining an increasingly precise understanding of the brain’s processes and the scientific research being conducted will bring us new discoveries that would have been unimaginable only a few years ago.
According to renowned neurobiologists, we are going to see new forms of treatment in the next few years, as well as advances in our knowledge of key aspects such as conscience, morality, intelligence and the building of beauty.
Take part in World Brain Awareness Week and discover some of the keys – still largely unknown to the general public – to understanding how the brain works.
