After a successful first time, Erasmus University College is organising another Brain Awareness Week! The Brain Awareness Week is a public education activity during which we organise different activities in the city of Rotterdam. The objective of these activities is to educate children, teenagers, and adults on how the brain works, how to take care of the brain and overall brain health.

Last year’s activities included educational talks on the brain, more than 26 neuroscience experimental activities and mini-lecture, 4 brain-related workshops and two brain dissections. Over 50 speakers participated including (EUC) students, lecturers, and researchers, and we got to enjoy two wonderful musical performances!

Brain Awareness Week 2024

The theme of this year’s Brain Awareness Week is “The Changing Brain”. We have yet again found inspiring speakers that will have sessions on “the normal brain”, the aging brain, different aspects to aging and changing as a result of dementia. Activities will include a brain dissection workshop and a workshop with holograms and VR. The events will take place at inspiring locations throughout the city of Rotterdam among others, Erasmus University College and the Natuurhistorisch Museum.
