The Trouble With Brain Science

The Trouble With Brain Science | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

Are we ever going to figure out how the brain works? After decades of research, diseases likeschizophrenia and Alzheimer’s still resist treatment. Despite countless investigations into serotonin and other neurotransmitters, there is still no method to cure clinical depression. And for all the excitement about brain-imaging techniques, the limitations of fMRI studies are, as evidenced by popular books like “Brainwashed” and “Neuromania,” by now well known. In spite of the many remarkable advances in neuroscience, you might get the sinking feeling that we are not always going about brain science in the best possible way not just that we lack answers.

La plasticité de l’esprit à l’heure des écritures numériques | Cultures numériques

La plasticité de l’esprit à l’heure des écritures numériques | Cultures numériques | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

"Lorsque j’ai commencé à écrire ce livre, je ne me posais aucune question sur son devenir numérique, et encore moins sur les mutations socioculturelles qu’engendraient ses différents niveaux de culture. J’ignorais de même tout des humanités numériques, demeurant focalisé sur la plastique des mots et l’écriture comme épreuve de soi. Pourtant, comme tout écrivain, je subis de plein fouet la montée en puissance des cultures numériques et baigne dans un environnement spatiotemporel dont les dimensions virtuelles et transversales ont tendance à fragmenter ou disloquer l’écrit tout en lui offrant paradoxalement une nouvelle dynamique. Cela signifie-t-il que le processus ou la genèse de l’écrit se renouvellent ? Que la plasticité du cerveau s’adapte en permanence, sollicitant plus encore les aires impliquées dans le langage et la créativité ? Ou les deux ? Interrogations somme toute banales si elles n’avaient pas de conséquences directes sur le mode de pensée de l’écrivant". Marc-Williams DEBONO Séminaire Cultures, Savoirs et Techniques Numériques Ecole des Chartes, Sorbonne, 24 Mai 2014 .

«  Masse sculpturale vivante. Bien des images traversent l'esprit, au plus profond de cette action : ces corps abandonnés au sol sont-ils des cadavres au bord d'une tranchée ? D'autres constructions suivent, de possible figure héroïque, dans la stratégie de relèvement, entraînée à la force du bras, par une effigie redressée, indiquant à tout le groupe la voie d'une renaissance. Du moins d'un redressement. On touche ici à une puissance d’évocation, à partir de laquelle le regard spectateur est, par excellence, libre d’élaborer des traductions diverses. » Ecole nationale de danse contemporaine d'Angers / Ecole supérieure de danse contemporaine

The Archaeology News Network: Skulls with mix of Neanderthal and primitive traits illuminate human evolution

The Archaeology News Network: Skulls with mix of Neanderthal and primitive traits illuminate human evolution | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
Marc Williams DEBONO (Plasticities Sciences Arts)'s insight:

"Researchers studying a collection of skulls in a Spanish cave identified both Neanderthal-derived features and features associated with more primitive humans in these bones. This "mosaic pattern" supports a theory of Neanderthal evolution that suggests Neanderthals developed their defining features separately, and at different times – not all at once. Having this new data from the Sima de los Huesos site, as the Spanish cave is called, has allowed scientists to better understand hominid evolution during the Middle Pleistocene, a period in which the path of hominid evolution has been controversial. » From Archeology News Network
