Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
Lecture: Neuroscience Contributions to Education and Health: Perspectives on Artificial Intelligence The lecture ¨neuroscience contributions to education and health: perspectives on artificial intelligence¨ was subdivided into several smaller lectures, which occur with an outstanding performance of the Professors and students involved. Lectures happened in a local high-school, and students, teachers, employees, and general public were present. Feedback from the audience was great, and the school will be part every year in the Brain Awareness Week (BAW) in the city of Diamantina, Brazil. All activities happened according to the program established. Objectives were reached, and general public was well satisfied with all informations, and experience. The first year of our activities was a total success, and in 2020 the plans are to expand the number of lectures, and diversificate the activities in BAW. Others schools, and institutions got to know what happened, and demonstrated interest in sharing our activities with their students/employees next year.
