Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
The BAW participation brought several benefits to my organization and society. They could notice the importance of Neuroscience research and how it could change our lives, promoting wellbeing and health. We knew the work of different researchs from USA, Recife (Brazil) and others. It was an amazing experience, full of learning for all age range.
