VdA and NOVA School of Law are organising a talk on "Neurocity: A Revolution for Urban Living", which will take place on September 27, between 9.15am and 10.30am, at VdA's António de Magalhães Cardoso Auditorium.

 Can urban planning influence people's lives and well-being in areas as diverse as social interaction, mental and physical health and brain development?

This talk will address the concept of "Neurourbanism", which aims to analyse how buildings and the organisation of cities can directly impact the human brain and influence the health and emotional well-being of the people who live or work in them.

The discussion will feature a presentation by Professor Paulo Morgado de Sousa, from the University of Lisbon and head of the "eMotional Cities" project, who will present ongoing research on the subject.

The discussion will be followed by a debate moderated by Miguel Marques dos Santos, with the participation of Diogo Moura, Lisbon City Councillor, Miguel Saraiva, CEO of Saraiva + Associados, Paulo Morgado Sousa, Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon, and Paulo Noriega, Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon.
