On the 2nd and 3rd of December 2023, São João da Madeira hosted, at the Oliva Creative Factory, the first edition of Veggie Christmas. Around 2000 visitors were able to enjoy vegetarian and vegan food, with a Christmas theme.

From the typical Christmas market, to show cooking and lectures, the offer was vast and, of course, guaranteed success!

The Talk Neuro to Me (Fala-me Neuro) team gave a talk entitled "Effects of sugar on a vegetarian brain" where they clarified basic concepts of the brain, how appetite is regulated and the effects of a vegetarian diet and sugar on the brain.

In partnership with LOLit (“Low literacy at play”), a European project on health literacy, we took neuroscience to the streets!

“Let's Talk Neuro in the Park” took place at Parque Verde do Mondego in Coimbra and included activities aimed at children and adults to promote literacy in neurosciences. In this Health and Longevity Square, questions about the brain and mind were answered in an interactive way, using anatomical models of the brain, material to get your hands dirty and interactive content. The event will be open to everyone and just show up for an informal conversation over the brain and let the conversation flow. There will be space for questions and lots of interactive learning about the brain and mind!

“Nutrition and the impact of sugar on the brain”

Talk Neuro to Me (Fala-me Neuro) will participate in International Brain Week 2023 whose theme is

“The Digital Brain”. 

 

As this is a topic linked to the digital revolution and technology, this year Talk Neuro to Me (Fala-me Neuro) aims to decentralize Neuroscience communication, leaving large urban centers, and taking content related to the brain and mind to rural areas.

This year's topic being "The Digital Brain", let's talk about the brain-technology relationship in 3 schools in the country:

  • Montemor-o-Velho School Group on March 30th and 31st

  • Lousada Secondary School (Porto) on April 17th, 18th and 21st

  • Alexandre Herculano School Group (Santarém) on April 19th and 26th

13-19 March 2023

How about we educate Neuroscience?

As part of International Brain Week 2022, Talk Neuro to Me (Fala-me Neuro) visited Basic and Secondary Education schools in 5 locations spread across Portuguese territory (Vila Nova de Famalicão, Coimbra, Lisbon and Portimão), where we addressed the topic "The Brain and the time".

In this initiative funded by FENS and Dana Foundation, we reached approximately 500 students with lectures on brain development and circadian rhythm (adapted to different ages) and many practical activities (puzzles, quizzes, crafts, souvenirs) that promoted Neuroscience education.
