Les arts numériques : Reset all? What’s next? - Mirage Festival - Open Creative Forum - 27-02-2015

Les arts numériques : Reset all? What’s next? - Mirage Festival - Open Creative Forum - 27-02-2015 | arslog | Scoop.it
On ne présente plus les « arts numériques », ces formes artistiques nées du croisement avec les technologies. En quelques années elles ont conquis la presse, joué sur les plus grandes scènes, charmé les sponsors des plus grandes marques et fait leur entrée dans le vocabulaire des Ministères. Tandis que ses protagonistes maturaient dans l’ombre des « alternatives culturelles » depuis plusieurs décennies, ils se révèlent au grand jour et, tel Icare, s’approchent vertigineusement du soleil. Le Mirage Festival s’est appuyé sur l’expertise de l’association AADN pour organiser cette journée qui propose de réflechir ensemble au devenir des arts numériques en conviant artistes, acteurs et observateurs dans une ambiance conviviale et débridée.

When Plato defined humans as two-legged animals without feathers, I suspect he was only half serious. Or if he was as humorless as some suppose, his antagonist Diogenes the Cynic certainly picked up on the joke, pointing out that the description sounds pretty much like a plucked chicken.

Complex nerve-cell signaling traced back to common ancestor of humans and sea anemones

Complex nerve-cell signaling traced back to common ancestor of humans and sea anemones | arslog | Scoop.it

New research shows that a burst of evolutionary innovation in the genes responsible for electrical communication among nerve cells in our brains occurred over 600 million years ago in a common ancestor of humans and the sea anemone. The research, led by Timothy Jegla, an assistant professor of biology at Penn State University, shows that many of these genes, which when mutated in humans can lead to neurological disease, first evolved in the common ancestor of people and a group of animals called cnidarians, which includes jellyfish, coral, and sea anemones.


"Our research group has been discovering evidence for a long time that most major signaling systems in our neurons are ancient, but we never really knew when they first appeared," Jegla said. "We had always assumed that we would be able to trace most of these signaling systems to the earliest nervous systems, but in this paper we show that this is not the case. It looks like the majority of these signaling systems first appear in the common ancestor that humans share with jellyfish and sea anemones."

Electrical impulses in nerve cells are generated by charged molecules known as ions moving into and out of the cell through highly specialized ion-channel proteins that form openings in the cell membrane. The new research focuses on the functional evolution of the genes that encode the proteins for potassium channels -- ion channels that allow potassium to flow out of nerve cells, stopping the cell's electrical impulses. "The channels are critical for determining how a nerve cell fires electrical signals," said Jegla. "It appears that animals such as sea anemones and jellyfish are using the same channels that shape electrical signals in our brains in essentially the same way."


"Humans and sea anemones went their separate ways evolutionarily speaking roughly 600 million years ago," said Jegla, "so we know that the mechanisms we use to generate impulses in our neurons must be at least that old."


Recent genome sequences from comb jellies, which also have nervous systems, show that they are a more ancient group of animals than sea anemones and might even be the oldest type of animals that are still living today. "When we looked at comb jellies, we found that the potassium channels looked very different -- most of the channel types found in humans were missing," said Jegla. "We could trace only one kind of the human potassium channels that we looked at all the way back to comb jellies, but we find almost all of them in sea anemones."
