Connecting neuroscience and people

Beines de Mielina (Myelin Sheaths) is a podcast in Catalan that will allow you to discover neuroscience from multiple perspectives; from the scientific discipline, the field of care or as a reality that affects us all, especially the millions of people who suffer from neurological disorders. Through the stories of patients at the Institut Guttmann, we will meet a multitude of professionals who will talk about how to prevent, detect and treat different pathologies, as well as making disability visible and raising awareness about the empowerment and quality of life of people with disabilities.

The title of the podcast "Beines de Mielina" (Myelin Sheaths) refers to the structure that surrounds the axon, an extension or "tail" of neurons. Myelin sheaths allow information to be transmitted quickly through nerve structures, just as this podcast will facilitate the transmission of information about neurorehabilitation, brain health and disability.

To ensure accessibility, each episode is accessible to the hearing impaired and is accompanied by audio-described subtitles as well as a transcript of the content.
