Brain Disorder Awareness
By: Stefanie Enriquez-Geppert
One of HNP's main goals is to spread awareness for neurological and neuropsychological diseases and issues. In this contest, students are asked to communicate their knowledge regarding brain disorders by producing an educational video or creating a medical fact sheet.
The most creative pieces will be rewarded with one of the legendary books by Oliver Sack - "The man who mistook his wife for a hat".
The Brain Disorder Awareness Video/Fact-Sheet Contest is part of the second year psychology training in the context of English version of “Introduction to Clinical Neuropsychology” course at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. The contest by HNP is based on a similar competition of the Society of Neuroscience.
