About the Event
The specific activities:
16.03.2020 – BAW posters – The brain connections – an exhibition of student’s posters about the function of the most important brain pathways as dopaminergic, cholinergic, serotoninergic, noradrenergic, reward, thermoregulation and movement pathway.
17.03.2020 - BAW lab – a laboratory of functional neuroanatomy it will organize for young students. The students will have to identify and recognize on the human brain atlas the functional regions of the brain and also to identify the connections between these regions which are activate during some activities like eating, walking, music listening, reading, singing, dancing, play a computer game.
18.03.2020 - Neuroset competition – a 9th edition of live neuroscience competition for young students about human brain and sense. The students have to answer at many questions about neuroanatomy, neurophysiology and brain diseases.
19.03.2020 - The Human Connectome – a lecture for students and teachers about Human Connectome. The lecture will organize in two parts: in the first part I will present the functional neuroanatomy of brain connections for learning and memory. In the second part the students will present their own studies about the functional role of brain pathways involved in perception, movement and environment adaptation.
20.03.2020 - Explore your Connectome – students from plastic art classroom of High School of Arts will explore and prepare color drawings with the white matter fiber architecture from the gallery of Human Connectome Project website.
21.03.2020 - Romanian Brain Bee - the winners of local Brain Bee competition will attend the 13th edition of neuroscience competition Romanian Brain Bee. Local competition will be held online on the website www.romanianbrainbee.com The competitors have to answer at questions and practical test with topics as neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurohistology and patient diagnosis. The winner of the Romanian Brain Bee competition will represent Romania at the International Brain Bee competition in Washington D.C., USA.
