See below the abstract of some presentations :

Prof. Sidarta Ribeiro

Title : Frontiers of Neuroscience and Mental Health in the 21st Century

Abstract : Advances in neuroscience and natural language computational processing with implications for mental health will be addressed. The focus will be the early diagnosis of disorders such as schizophrenia, and the treatment of mood disorders by psychotherapy assisted by psychedelic substances that induce neural plasticity.

Prof. Renato malcher Lopes
Title: The neurobiological basis for the therapeutic use of cannabinoids in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders.

Abstract: We will explore information that generally relates the functions of the endocannabinoid system to the etiology of autism. We will also discuss the most specific scientific data on the use of phytocannabinoids to treat autism symptoms in animal models and in human clinical studies. We will complement this discussion with speculations, still incipient, about the possible benefits of using psilocybin, alone or in combination with cannabinoids, for the treatment of such symptoms.

Dr. Elmo Resende

Title: Minor cannabinoids and the human health

Abstract: we will talk about the importance of the minor cannabinoids in human health, its extractions and identification. We will complement our presentation talking about biosynthesis of cannabinoids and its potential for the pharmaceutical industry.

Prof.Renata Morais

Title : Grounding Self across Intelligent PluriversesAbstract:  we are currently experiencing the emergence of multiple hyper-connected pluriverses that integrate artificial intelligence, responsive interfaces, affective environments and blockchain metaverses. In each one of these technologically mediated environments, social context changes placing stress on different displays of identity. The velocity in which these changes in social context take place, as users navigate different metaverses and environments, also produces new kinds of anxiety and confusion. Mindful experiences that focus on mental health are also being designed in various metaverses. We will present a brief survey of the state-of-the art in metaverse applications, exploring its perils and potentialities.
