Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
The main objective of this week of the brain in the CIM ORT was to provide an overview of the importance of the brain and its research in the student community, for this the high school students of the biological sciences conducted a series of talks and activities To discuss about the brain. The objectives were satisfactory, as the students (both the public and those who spoke) understood and related the basic aspects of brain functioning, their areas and related scientific research. Without a doubt, the fact that the students talk with other students about a topic is enriching, for both, in their learning process and approach to knowledge as they handle a context and similar language.
