EBC will hold the reception “Mood and Food: Exploring the gut-brain connection” in the European Parliament on the occasion of Brain Awareness Week (BAW) 2019. This year’s event, organized in cooperation with the European Dana Alliance for the Brain (EDAB) and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), will revolve around the connection between mood and food, exploring the relationship between what you eat and how it can affect your mood and daily function.
BAW is held on a yearly basis in order to increase public awareness on the progress and benefits of brain research. Speakers that will contribute to the forthcoming reception include Dr. Alejandro Arias-Vasquez (New Brain Nutrition Project), Kimberley Wilson (Monumental Health, NHS Mental Health Trust Governor) and moderator Prof. Patrice Boyer (EBC Vice President). MEPs Marian Harkin (ALDE, IE) and José Inácio Faria (EPP, PT) will host the event.
