Every third Thursday of each month, NeuroMarseille offers you the “Neuro’binars”. The next appointment is on November 19th at 4 pm!
For this first edition, we had the pleasure to welcome Rochelle Ackerley (LNSC), Lucie Pépino (IBDM) and Mikhael Azilinon (CRMBM/INS). In this video, you will be able to watch the cross presentations of our two PhD students Lucie and Mikhael (at 3 min on the video) and finally the presentation of Rochelle Ackerley from 21 min 52 sec. To know more about the speakers, do not hesitate to scroll down the page.
A one-hour web-conference in 2 parts: two PhD students will give a 10 min cross-presentation of their PhD work. After 5 min of questions, they will hand over to a researcher, a postdoc or an engineer from the neuroscience community who will present in 20 min an accessible version of their research. Once again, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, debate on the topic of the day or simply get to know your colleague better!
Your "Zoomers" of this first edition
For the first meeting, we had the pleasure to welcome Lucie Pepino (IBDM) and Mikhael Azilinon (CRNBM/INS) for a cross-presentation of their PhD. This exchange was followed by a presentation by Rochelle Ackerley (LSNC): we warmly thank them for having courageously launched the first edition!
Generating artificial touch: from the contribution of single tactile afferents to the encoding of complex percepts, and their implications for clinical innovation
After a PhD in Physiology at the University of Bristol in the UK in 2006, Rochelle Ackerley worked as a cognitive neuroscientist researcher in industry for two years, then continued with a post-doc working in eye and head movement control at the University of Manchester in the UK. In 2010, she started an Assistant Professor position at the University of Goteborg in Sweden, where she learned the technique of microneurography, where single peripheral fibres are recorded from in humans. Since 2017, she has been a research fellow (CR1) at the CNRS in the Laboratory of Sensory and Cognitive Neurosciences where she continues to use microneurography in her ERC Consolidator 2017 ARTTOUCH grant. She has published more than 40 articles in peer-reviewed journals and is the president of the International Association for the Study of Affective Touch (IASAT).
