Angela Sirigu is delighted to announce that Bechir Jarraya, from NeuroSpin, CEA-Inserm UniCog, Université de Versailles Paris-Saclay, Hôpital Foch is coming to give a conference on:
Consciousness modulation in non-human primates.
In this talk I will present experimental evidence of consciousness manipulation in macaque monkeys using cognitive auditory tasks, pharmacological manipulation with different anesthetic agents, and causal interventions with electrical deep brain stimulation in awake and anesthetized macaques. Ultimately, these findings could translate into therapeutical neurostimulation for consciousness restoration in minimally conscious state patients.
Council room, ISC Marc Jeannerod, from 11.30.
