In collaboration with the Academy of Neurosciences and the Hellenic Society of Neurosciences, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is holding the day conference Exploring the Human Brain. The conference will present, in an accessible manner, scientific findings of recent years about the function of the brain, the perception of the world around us, the decision-making process, emotions and memory.
The event includes workshops for children, adolescents and adults, in which participants will have the opportunity to learn from experienced neuroscientists about the fundamental operating principles of the brain and neural networks. A screening will also take place, of the documentary film Exploring the Brain – From the First Steps to Twenty First Century Neuroscience. The film presents an overview of the landmarks in the history of neuroscience and traces the shifts in the perception of brain function from prehistoric times to the present day. The conference will conclude with a series of talks by prominent scientists highlighting the latest neuroscience research and future research directions, as well as the impact of neuroscience on our lives, other sciences and technology.
