Eating is one of the first and most basic physiological needs which is essential for our functioning. As humanity reached the point when there are more obese than starving people in the world, we are becoming more aware of the importance of nutrition. Through science we realised that many of the most common diseases are caused by certain eating habits, however, there is still much to discover.

In our next meetup we will learn about the effect of what we eat on our brain from two very different point of view. Dr. Noelia Urbán Avellaneda neurobiologist will bust the myth that new neurons are not born in the adult brain, infact, she will explain how our nutrition influences the genesis of new brain cells. Mary Ward biologist will explain how bacteria in our gut communicates with the brain and how important it is to keep them happy (so we keep being happy).
