This seminar was organised by Yannick Becker, a PhD student from NeuroSchool PhD Program. Organizing and participating in the seminar is part of the students training to:
- Enrich knowledge outside of one’s field of expertise
- Overcome shyness
- Participate in open debates and discussions

I am currently investigating the neurobiological and bodily roots of intersubjectivity, empathy, aesthetic experience, and various psychopathological conditions, among which schizophrenia.
