Come and share a drink with us to discover the world of tomorrow because the future is now.

How to make new neurons in our brain?

Prof. Nicolas Toni (Professor, University of Lausanne and CHUV )
Contrary to a long-held belief, our brain can generate new neurons throughout our entire life. This is called adult neurogenesis.

Where does it occur in our brain?
How does it work?
Why is it insufficient to regenerate neurons lost to diseases?
Can we stimulate adult neurogenesis and are there simple ways to do it?
Is it therapeutically interesting?
How is it related to depression and memory?

These are the questions that are currently keeping researchers busy and that we will discuss around a pint of beer.

Challenging the Norm: Why Studying Sex and Gender in Health Research is Crucial

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in studying the impact of sex and gender on health outcomes. Historically, medical research has neglected the health of women and marginalized groups. My talk will address the significance of considering sex, gender, and other personal identities when examining health outcomes, such as brain aging. While some progress has been made in this area, there is still a lot of work to be done to understand about how an individual’s identity impacts their health. Adopting this approach is critical to provide more effective and customized interventions.
