19th National Health Sciences Research Symposium Essay Competition

Posted by
Reading Time: 2 minutes


The 19th National Health Sciences Research Symposium, dedicated to neuroscience, is scheduled for November 4-6. We invite you to participate in an essay competition based on the theme, ‘Can the brain understand the brain?’ 
“How is memory stored? What defines our personalities? How can we explain something as intangible as emotion – reduce this highly sophisticated phenomenon to a list of objective scientific facts?
“What about the dreams we see every night? Are they a product of the intricate organic infrastructure we call the brain? Or does it fall in the equally complex realm of the mind?
“What is love? Is it the spontaneous shooting of a million neurons in our cortices that push us to seek companionship? Or is there some other hand at play – puppeteering us through this convoluted maze of devotion?
“Above all else, what is consciousness and freewill? Will we ever be able to comprehend it? Or will it be just another mystery, forever locked away in the tortuous gyri of our brains?”

‘Can the brain understand the brain?’
