Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We organized 3 days symposia which had been pre-recorded and broadcasted through YouTube. Each day, we invited 3 famous neuroscientists. Day 1 covers basic neuroscience including neurogenomics, the role of astrocyte, and learning and memory. Day 2 has more focus on medical aspects. Day 3 focused on neuro-engineering perspectives like Brain-machine interface. In addition, we had a one day live Q&A session using the Zoom platform. We invited 12 high school students for the live session. Because of Covid-19, all the events were virtual.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

Increased interest in brain and brain disorders. High school students started to ask questions to local neuroscientists and ask for research participation.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

Highly likely, the next events will be also virtual. There might be a good side to this. For example, countries can share their online materials.
