Brain awareness week 2018

How does the brain process information, how is the information stored in form of memory traces and then recalled as memories? How are the movement and memories related? What happens in the brain while dreaming? These and other topics were discussed with researchers from the Biomedical Center during the 20th year of the Brain Awareness Week from 12th to 16th March.

Brain Awareness Week is a unique cycle of lectures on the latest discoveries and trends in in brain research and neuroscience. The Czech event is a part of a worldwide awareness campaign on the successes and benefits of brain research. The Pilsen Medical Faculty has joined this nationwide event for the second time this year.

On the premises of the Study and Science Library, interactive lessons of “Maps In Our Mind” (in English and Spanish), intended for schools, took place during the mornings. Three afternoons of the week were devoted to lectures for the public, as well as a projection of a documentary movie “Vergiss mein nicht” on the subject of Alzheimer's disease. In total, about 150 people took part in the Brain Awareness Week in Pilsen.
