We are regularly involved in scientific dissemination events on cognitive neuroscience online:

- Brain Awareness Week: Young Researchers talk about Neuroscience on March 18-19, 2021 (event in Italian).

- BrainHack Diversity in Padova: Inter-individual variability in cognitive and clinical neuroscience: signal or noise? on Dec 14-16 2020

- VenetoNightPadova on Nov 27th 2020

- On the 11th-12th of March 2019, we had a great dissemination activity at University of Padova (organizing departments: DPG, DPSS, DSB, DNS, PNC): Young Researchers' version of the Brain Awareness Week. That year was 10th birthday of this great event at unipd!

- On the 29th-30th Sept 2017, we organized a fantastic International Conference: Cognitive Neuroscience of Executive Functions (CNEF_2017) at the Botanic Gardens, University of Padova, Italy.
