About

Hello,
My name is Seweryn, I am 29 years old and currently live in Gdynia (Poland). For many years I have been interested in issues related to the brain and its functioning.

WHAT DOES "MÓZGOWIEC" MEAN?
In free translation from Polish mean: "BRAINIAC", but the Polish words "MÓZG" and "OWIEC" mean in turn: "BRAIN" and "SHEEP'S" (in the context that something belongs to the sheep) ", so this play on words in Polish is "MÓZGOWIEC" mean: a thoughtful, inquisitive person (how humble I am), but also "SHEEP'S BRAIN", so the logo looks like this.

WHY AM I INTERESTED IN NEUROSCIENCE AND PSYCHOLOGY?
It interests me that these are things that we can discover, but I do not think that during my life we will discover it completely. I would rather say that the pace is staggering compared to previous centuries, but compared to what awaits us is a drop in the ocean of needs. It is like one neuron of the remaining 86 billion in the brain, or maybe less than that neuron.

WHO AM I?
I am a lawyer and surveyor by education. The blog is a reflection of one of my interests. I guess that studies in neurobiology, psychology, cognitive science It could be interesting, but I also noticed that being self-taught (in the age of the Internet the possibilities are unlimited - books, YouTube, mass online courses from renowned universities - for example: Coursera) I have more freedom and discovering new things by myself is even enjoyable. After years of learning from primary school to university, I think that the traditional model of teaching is outdated and I don't want to waste time on learning what I'm not interested in.
I believe that human understanding covers many fields: neurobiology, psychology, psychiatry, genetics, epigenetics, philosophy, anthropology and even game theory, cognitive primacy and many others, but these seem to me to be the most important.

HOW LONG DO I RUN THE BLOG?
The topic of cognitive neuroscience, because it is the main topic of my blog, I started in 2018 by creating a profile on Instagram: Mózgowiec .
In 2020, I opened a website at: Mózgowiec - neuroblog (website)
I have satisfaction because, apart from buying a template, I did the rest myself, and I'm not an IT specialist.

FOR WHOM?
I very much hope that the blog will attract people interested in the subject of cognitive neuroscience, what is happening in the brain and why, and what's more, I hope that it will interest those who are still not interested, because voluntary learning is simply interesting! As a child I did not have access to the Internet, but if I had access to content like mine, maybe I would check it in sometimes. Otherwise, I don't regret it, because I spent whole days playing ball and with my beloved family.

MY EFFORT
I try to make the articles as credible as possible. Everyone is wrong, so the blog will never be perfect. It is the sum of my experience, knowledge, inquisitiveness, work and mistakes.
I am open to criticism and I don't stick rigidly to my opinion without considering new aspects that I may not have known for some reason. I like conversations on interesting topics, discussions that I encourage.

WHAT LANGUAGE DO I WRITE IN?
I write in Polish (I wasn't born in the USA or Great Britain, and the system of teaching forced me to learn German, which my great-grandmother knew perfectly well, but after the war she had had enough of it, me too).
But I know that Google Translator is doing a great job and the articles will be understandable to you. In the future, I'm going to translate the articles into English and Spanish (or maybe even German;))

This description was created using Google Translate and DeepL, so forgive me for my mistakes (I'm waiting for Translatotron; P)
