The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin invites you to the Digital Science Communication Cafe. Get ready to hear exciting insights from scientists into their work while drinking coffee in a cozy atmosphere (in front of the screens).
This time Kiara Freitag, a PhD student from our Berlin site, will be a guest. She is doing research, in Prof. Heppner's working group, on the influence of nutrition on our risk of Alzheimer's disease in old age. The following questions arise: What happens in the first place when someone develops Alzheimer's? Why do some people get Alzheimer's and others don't? Could the cause be a viral infection in childhood? Or is the cause a poor diet? Does our diet have an influence on inflammatory reactions in the brain and can we perhaps change our Alzheimer's risk in this way - so what would we have to eat in order not to forget in old age? Embark on an exciting journey through our brain and learn how these questions are researched in neurobiology in the laboratory.
