Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We organized a morning with themed lectures. Initially, our morning of that day began with a lecture on Optogenetics, what is and future perspectives, given by the Specialist Professor Marcelo Farias, Institution Teacher. Then, the students of the group chosen to participate in the event presented their work on the neuroanatomy of the senses, using models representing the neural circuits, projections and printed materials. Finally, the neuroscientist researcher, Amanda Mota, from the Federal University of Pará, gave a playful lecture on Neuroscience of Love, aimed at the young target audience of our activity, using audiovisual resources. Our goals were achieved by including in our annual program this activity focused on Brain Week. The students involved were enthusiastic and the Directorate of the Institution approved this idea because it is unusual and stimulating to other teachers.
