ENGLISH VERSION

 The aim of this seminar is to create a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers working on issues related to the study of the brain and the mind. The topics and approaches will include philosophy (e.g. philosophy of neuroscience, philosophy of mind, neurophilosophy, philosophy of language, philosophy of psychology and cognitive science, metaphysics), neuroscience, psychology and behavioral sciences in general. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

· Understanding how decision making, executive control, and learning and memory are implemented in the human brain;

· Computational approaches for inference on complex systems;

· Topological modeling of the brain;

· Understanding neuro-computational methodology; 

· Understanding sense of agency;

· Understanding experimental, translational and clinical research of the mechanisms and applications of neuromodulation in major neurological, psychiatric and cortical brain diseases such as dementia, epilepsy, depression, traumatic brain disease, cortical deafness;

· The problems of consciousness, e.g. the explanatory gap problem, the neural correlates of consciousness, intentionality, personal identity, metaphysics of mind;

· Understanding methods for obtaining data in neuroscience;

· And many other. 

 The seminar has two parts. One part is local, and it will function like a research seminar in which members will be able to present their own work or discuss some recently published works. The other part will be a distinguished lecture series, in which leading scholar on the topics of interest will be invited to give a talk.

 

The seminar will always take place on Mondays or Tuesdays from 5-7 PM. 

 The inaugural talk will be given by Jean Daunizeau (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière, Paris) on Monday 02 October 2017 at 5 PM at the IHPST, Salle de Conférence (2nd Floor, 13 rue du Four, 75006, Paris). The title of his talk is: "Dynamic causal modelling of brain-behavior relationships"  (Abstract). 

The next in the distinguished lecture series will be Sophie Achard (CNRS, GIPSA-lab, Grenoble) on Monday 27 November 2017, at the IHPST, Salle de Conférence (2nd Floor, 13 rue du Four, 75006, Paris).

We will try to video record each of the distinguished lectures and post them online. The information about the podcasts will be available soon.

Nous inclurons ainsi la philosophie (philosophie des sciences, philosophie de l’esprit, philosophie de la médecine, métaphysique) ainsi que les neurosciences, la psychologie et les sciences du comportement.

Le séminaire inclura des séances de travail où les chercheurs impliqués régulièrement dans ses activités pourront présenter leur travail en cours, et également des conférences invitées.

Les séminaires auront lieu à l’IHPST le lundi ou le mardi de 17 à 19h. 

La conférence inaugurale sera donnée par Jean Daunizeau (Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière, Paris) le lundi 2 octobre 2017 à 17h à l’IHPST, Salle de Conférence (2ème étage, 13 rue du Four, 75006, Paris).
