Brain and predictions; sleep disorders and ADHD

From March 12 to 22, the general public will be able to meet research stakeholders to learn more about the brain and find out about current events in this field. At the opening, the establishment wishes to promote three winning projects from Gard Brain Week Ambassadors. These projects, which aim to awaken curiosity and transmit the scientific approach linked to artistic or literary practices, will be presented by students from Gard schools. This work was carried out as part of a collaboration between Cardie (academic research, development, innovation and experimentation unit) and Laurie Galvan, lecturer in neuroscience at the University of Nîmes and responsible of the scientific committee of Brain Week in Nîmes.

Why a week around the brain ?

Organized every year in March since 1999, Brain Week is coordinated in France by the Société neuroscience. This international event, imagined by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and the European Dana Alliance for the Brain, is organized simultaneously in around a hundred countries and more than 120 cities in France. Its aim is to raise awareness among the general public à the importance of brain research. This is an opportunity for many researchers to meet the public and share with them the advances obtained in neuroscience research laboratories, and to present them. the challenges for knowledge of the brain and the implications for our society.
