It is the Brain Awareness Week, the week to learn about the brain and to bring citizens closer to scientific research in the neurological field. Organized by the DANA Foundation ( headquartered in New York), the event sees the strong commitment of the Neurobiotech Center in Caserta. Seminars, visits to workshops and meetings with students are the essence of a program designed to explore the wonders of the brain. But there is not only laboratory science: particular attention will be given to the questions that are emerging in the field of neurobiology. Finally, two events will be aimed at the prevention of diseases of the nervous system: sleep disorders and cerebral stroke.
“The Brain Awareness Week is an important appointment for all those involved in the nervous system. We are not just talking about pathologies, but about the charm of the brain itself, the most complex structure of the whole known universe. This is why our events are divided into medicine and, we might say, philosophy. Because science is revealing to us incredible aspects of our brain and it is right for everyone to become aware of the roads that open up before us ” says the engineer Fabio Sebastiano – Scientific Manager of the Cyber Brain Neurobiotech Center. In detail, Tuesday, March 13, starting at 10 a.m., guided tours will take place in the laboratories of the Neurobiotech Center in Caserta. On Wednesday, the 14th of March, Professor Diego Centonze, Head of the Unit of Neurology of the I.R.C.C.S. Neuromed and Professor of Neurology at the Tor Vergata University of Rome, will meet the students of the Liceo Classico “P. Giannone “.
