CIMeC CITTÀ - alla scoperta della mente | Rovereto June-July 2019

In collaboration with the Municipality of Rovereto | Rovereto summer events 2019
A mini-series of neuro-scientific-themed conferences proposed with a popular style, for non-experts, for the pleasure of discovering the secrets and mechanisms that underlie our mind's functioning. Researchers from the Interdepartmental Center for Mind and Brain at the University of Trento welcome citizens in the splendid setting of Palazzo Fedrigotti's garden, involving it in a four-Wednesday circuit dedicated to Science, from neuroimaging to gender differences, from aging to deafness. And to discover the relationship between neurosciences and food, an extra appointment on Monday 24th June at the Cortesela Bondadi with the opening of the Coffee Museum.

Physical activity is one of the pillars for healthy aging of body and mind. It has health benefits in the healthy population and helps to delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases. Recent scientific studies show that a constant activity allows to slow down some symptoms in chronic diseases, such as Parkinson's disease. It is therefore necessary to spread the practice of physical activity and dance, which are effective tools for active aging and which resonate at a social and emotional level, improving the quality of life and relationships.
