Open Door sessions of the Department for neurobiology during Brain Awareness Week

As part of Brain Awareness Week, organized by the Student Section for Neurosciences of the Serbian Neuroscience Society, university and high school students had the opportunity to visit the laboratories of the Department for Neurobiology of the Institute for Biological Research "Siniša Stanković".

Researchers from the Laboratory for Neurooncology, Laboratory for Neurochemistry, and Laboratory for Molecular Neurobiology hosted younger colleagues and introduced them to the topics and methods relevant for their research.

For the 12th year in a row, the Student Section for Neurosciences of the Serbian Neuroscience Society has been organizing Brain Awareness Week, which is an event dedicated to the popularization of science and the importance of medicine, psychology and biology through lectures, exhibitions and workshops. The event is held all over the world during the third week of March. The program is intended for all ages, and over 3,000 visitors attend this event annually.

This year's Brain Awareness Week, titled "Fear - A Driving Force in Nature," takes place from March 13 to 19. In the modern world, fear is talked about only in a negative context, but is fear always bad? Through a multidisciplinary approach, the Student Section for Neuroscience presents the concept of fear through the following units: evolution of fear, anatomy of fear, fear of animals, PTSD, epigenetics, philosophical and cultural aspects of fear as well as treatment and psychotherapy.
