Description de la soumission d'un avis
“He’s good, ordinary or even useful. He’s running, he’s rushing us. We measure him, win him, lose him, challenge him and sometimes kill him. And yet he eludes us when we try to seize him.
Six neuroscientists and a writer help us understand time, the most enigmatic dimension of our universe.”
These few sentences represent the pitch of the first edition of the NeuroStories, on the topic of time. They took place on October 7, 2019 in the Toga Amphitheatre of the Faculty of Medical and Paramedical Sciences on the Timone campus.
NeuroStories, what’s that?
Each year, NeuroSchool tells us stories on a theme that is both philosophical and scientific. The aim is to make known, in an inventive way, the cutting-edge research carried out in Marseille and elsewhere, in the field of neuroscience. The inventive format combines NeuroStories and scientific chats.
Each NeuroStory is told in the form of a 10-minute stand up that is filmed and then broadcasted on NeuroSchool’s YouTube channel.
Each science chat is an encounter with the researcher who told the scientific story.
The NeuroStories are available on Youtube!
As mentioned earlier, the theme of the 2019 edition of NeuroStories was time, hence the title “Je t’aime Temps” (I love you Time). Seven speakers came to present their neuroscientific research on time:
- Camille Grasso, doctoral student in cognitive psychology and neuroscience at the LPC, came to talk about time incarnate.
- Jennifer Coull, Senior CNRS Research Fellow at the LNC, explained the “ghost in the machine”.
- Anne-Marie François-Bellan, senior INSERM researcher at the INP, talked about cellular clocks.
- Laurent Perrinet, a CNRS researcher at the INT, mixed time with one of our senses: vision.
- Daniele Schön, CNRS researcher at the INS, came to mix the passing of time and music.
- Corine Sombrun and Francis Taulelle from the TranceScience Research Institute came to present the alteration of the sense of time.
Videos of each of these talks are available in this dedicated playlist on NeuroSchool’s Youtube account. As for the transcribed speeches of each of the speakers, they can be downloaded here.
