Brain week in France: a view from Lyon
Organized every year in March since 1999, Brain Week is coordinated in France by the Society of Neurosciences. This international event, organized simultaneously in a hundred countries and more than 120 cities in France, aims to raise public awareness of the importance of brain research. This is an opportunity for many volunteer researchers, doctors and students to meet the public and share with them the advances obtained in neuroscience research laboratories, to present the challenges for the knowledge of the brain and the implications for our society. Throughout this week, the general public was able to meet researchers to get to know the brain better and learn about current research. It is a spectacular event by its national and international dimension, by the number of people mobilized, by the public success encountered, and by the quality of its programming.
From March 14th to 20th, 2022, the neuroscience ecosystem met, discussed and debated on the brain and more broadly on "neuro-info" as part of the 24th edition of Brain Week. Brain Week is the mobilization of the entire neuroscience community in more than 100 countries around the world.
Dr. Annie Andrieux, President of the Neuroscience Society in France, remarked that “in France, with 800 researchers and research actors within nearly 40 local committees throughout the territory, the people could attend evenings with entertainment, conferences, debates or even shows. In 2021, most of the events took place virtually, this year, the exchanges took place either face-to-face or digitally”.
“The brain has always been passionate, it participates in all our vital functions (eating, sleeping, etc.) but also in other more “superfluous” activities such as laughing, feeling, loving…
This fascinating brain can be approached in so many different ways”.
“The inaugural national conference took place in Grenoble this year, on the theme “Brain, electro musician”. Music is universal, it is present in all cultures, wherever there is human. During this evening, classical music, improvised music and detection of brain waves were skillfully mixed. This musical experience of real-time brainwave music created a unique concert”, indicated Dr. Annie Andrieux.
In Lyon there were many activities that we present in the following section, as the city prepares for NeuroFrance 2023, on May 24-26th, 2023. After 2021’s virtual event, Lyon will present a real-live full conference with a varied scientific programme, mentoring sessions for young researchers, interventions from clubs and affiliated research groupings, a trade exhibition and a social programme that will allow attendees to continue their conversations in a relaxed atmosphere.
BRAIN WEEK ON STAGE: Nose to nose - The 5 senses.
Smells have unsuspected powers, they act on our brain at the same time as they strike our heart. Through this creation, the poet and the scientist become the instigators of a new contemporary ritual that puts man face to face with his mystery in the midst of the clouds and vapors of his imagination.
Nose to nose, olfactory experience, is a show for the senses, in which smells play the leading role. They invite themselves into the stage space and infiltrate inside the spectators. This is the starting point of an intimate and introspective journey. Smells come to awaken a world populated by memories and fantasies and offer a space of freedom for our imaginations.
This Center Imaginaire show was created in close collaboration with the Center for Neuroscience Research in Lyon.
It was held in CCO La Rayonne, 24B Rrue Alfred de Musset, 69100 Villeurbanne, and the speakers were Nathalie Buonviso and Alexandra Veyrac, CNRS researchers at the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center.
At the end of the performance, the scientists involved (Nathalie and Alexandra) and the members of the company offered a time for discussion.
“THE NOSE-TO-NOSE MULTI-SENSORY EXPERIENCE RESTORES THE EMBLEM OF THIS UNKNOWN SENSE IN MAN. EMOTIONS ARE AVOIDED BY A SCENARIO WHERE THE SMELL IS CHALLENGED BY SOUNDS, MUSIC, LIGHTS, BREATHS. »
THE 7TH ART IN THE BRAIN WEEK: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind: is memory a hard disk?
“Joël and Clémentine only see the bad sides of their tumultuous love story, to the point that Clémentine has all traces of this relationship erased from her memory. Collapsed, Joël contacts the inventor of the Lacuna process, Dr. Mierzwiak, so that he can also eradicate from his memory everything that linked him to Clémentine.”
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is a film by Michel Gondry (2013) starring Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet and Kirsten Dunst.
The screening at Aquarium Ciné Café, 10 rue Dumont, 69004 (La Croix-Rousse, Lyon) was be followed by a discussion with Hanna Chainay, professor of neuropsychology and cognitive psychology at Lyon 2 University, specialist in the link between memory and emotions. She is head of the “Memory, emotion, attention” team in the Study of Cognitive Mechanisms laboratory.
WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT? THE CONTRIBUTION OF RESEARCH TO THE SERVICE OF PSYCHIATRY
A conference about understanding the brain, held at the Ludgunum, Roman museum and theatre, 17 Rue Cléberg, 69005 Lyon.
Perceiving and detecting the gaze of others is an essential factor for social interactions, right from birth. What do we know fundamentally about the development of gaze perception and detection in neuro-typical development? How atypicalities lead to behavioral particularities and can be the first symptoms of psychiatric disorders?

CHILD CARE IN 2022: FRAGILE CARE!
A conference about brain and society, held at the town hall of the 8th arrondissement, Espace Citoyen, 12 avenue Jean Mermoz, 69008 Lyon.
In a hyper-connected and information overloaded world, staying attentive to a task becomes almost mission impossible. Children are at the forefront of this societal transformation, with particular consequences for their learning. This conference invited to reclaim the attention with two specialists in attention disorders in children. It was discussed in particular: the main characteristics of this function, essential to the regulation of our behavior and the development of learning, as well as the different brain networks that underlie it. They explained how attention, which relies on a delicate balance, can be undermined by our way of life, emphasizing in particular the importance of sleep.
So many elements to try to answer this big question: is it possible to be attentive in 2022?
Marine Thieux and Vania Herbillon presented a research project carried out in collaboration between the Hôpital Femme Mère-Enfant and the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center which aims to capture the micro-fluctuations of vigilance in order to explore their impact on attentional functioning during of the day.

HISTORY OF NEUROSCIENCE: THE DOCTOR FACING PAIN, 16TH-18TH CENTURIES
Exhibition at the media library of Vaise, place Valmy, 69009 Lyon.
Pain management is sometimes perceived as a novelty, a practice neglected in the past. However, pain is already a subject of concern in the 16th-18th centuries. Even if the medicine of that time is partly powerless to remedy it, doctors often mention it and always seek to relieve it.
Dwelling on the period of the 16th-18th centuries allows us to disorient our gaze on this problem: the detour through the past contributes to the renewal of current questions and practices.
This exhibition, under the scientific direction of Raphaële Andrault and Ariane Bayle, members of the Institute for the History of Representations and Ideas in Modernity, included interviews with neurologists, pain specialists.
It can also be discovered online in a web documentary version.
This web documentary is the result of multidisciplinary research work (literature, language, history and philosophy). It was born from an observation: when one reads the medical texts of the 16th-18th centuries, one is struck by the omnipresence of the problem of pain, which goes against the widespread idea according to which the pain would not have been a real concern for physicians and philosophers before the end of the 18th century.
Researchers, by crossing various sources (texts, images, music), bring to light recurring questions, which undo some of our prejudices and which sometimes resonate more strongly than one could imagine with today's medicine. today.
An exhibition at the Rockefeller Health BU (Lyon), presented to the public in the winter of 2020-2021, made it possible to show an initial state of this research. It is developed in this web documentary, consisting of a virtual exhibition, works from the period (to read and listen to), as well as interviews with neurologists. These filmed interviews confront old and contemporary conceptions of pain: they show in particular that the problem of the signs of pain and of the language used to express it still remains an object of exploration, both for medical sciences and for the humanities.

EMOTIONS: IS IT IN MY HEAD?
Conference at the Part-Dieu municipal library, 30 boulevard Marius Vivier-Merle, 69003 Lyon, conducted by Sylvain Delplanque, researcher at the Interfaculty Center for Affective Sciences, University of Geneva.
The fact that we sometimes cry of joy at the happy ending of a romantic comedy, that we have difficulty falling asleep because of stress, that we feel serene during a walk in the forest … emotions are at the heart of our daily lives, and sometimes feel like a roller coaster.
The key to our emotional states lies at the heart of our most complex organ, the brain. How can we identify our emotions, describe them, study them? What strategies can be put in place to regulate them?

BRAIN AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: FIVE NEWS FROM THE BRAIN
As researchers gradually uncover the mysteries of the human brain, the race is on between human intelligence and artificial intelligence.
Five Brain Stories takes us to the heart of today's science, discovering the work of five scientists, at the crossroads between the brain, consciousness and artificial intelligence.
A the Le Comoedia cinema, 13 avenue Berthelot, 69007 Lyon, it was presented a film directed by Jean-Stéphane Bron (cinema release March 16, 2022)
The screening of the documentary was followed by a discussion with Emanuelle Reynaud, teacher-researcher in cognitive sciences and Amélie Cordier, researcher and president of the Lyon-iS-Ai association, both specialists in artificial intelligence.

THE 5 SENSES: FROM SOUND PERCEPTION TO AUDITIVE ILLUSIONS
Sound perception involves mechanisms that make it possible to transcribe acoustic vibrations into relevant information for our senses. Under certain conditions, for example when there is a lot of noise, the acoustic information received may be imperfect or degraded, and other cognitive mechanisms then take over to fill this information gap. Our brain also constructs a mental representation of the perceived sound: what is its nature, where does it come from in space, what does it mean?
This event was intended for inmates of the Villefranche-sur-Saône Penitentiary Center - it was not open to the general public (260 Rue Lavoisier, 69400 Villefranche-sur-Saône).
Two scientists from the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center gave all the keys to understanding what happens in our brain when we perceive a sound, and you can realize that what we hear is the result of our experience, and does not correspond always to the reality of the sounds emitted. Amazing visual and auditory illusions could be discovered.

How is pain transmitted to the brain? What exactly is going on in the brain when my hand hurts? These questions, studied today by neurophysiology, have a long history. In the 16th century, for example, surgeons, physicians and philosophers wondered about the role of the brain in pain, starting from a surprising observation: some people with amputated hands felt pain in the same hand, although lost during of the operation.
It was put into perspective ancient and modern knowledge about pain, described both persistent misunderstandings and brilliant intuitions about the role of the brain in the complexity of pain sensation, and showed how certain current ideas respond to the discourse of our predecessors.
UNDERSTANDING THE BRAIN: COMA, WHEN REALITY EXCEEDS FICTION
From hordes of zombies roaming the streets of a devastated city in slow motion to patients leaping from their hospital beds in an instant upon waking up after years of a vegetative state, from a brain speaking from a jar to a perfect consciousness locked in an inert body, the representation of the coma and more generally of consciousness in the cinema very often stems from a fantasized imagination. What really happens in the brain during a coma? How can scientific research help intensive care physicians improve patient care? Based on extracts from films and series, two neuroscientists offered a journey between fiction and reality, to explore the functioning of our brain during these episodes of altered consciousness.

BRAIN AND ART: BRAIN AND MUSIC
ROUND TABLE at Pasteur Institute, 28 Rue du Doctor Roux, 75015 Paris
It accompanies us everywhere and almost always, takes the most varied forms, transports us, impregnates our brain, moves us and makes our bodies dance. Music is one of the most fascinating art forms that continues to attract the interest of neuroscientists. Our brain is irreducibly musical.
How are musical sound elements created and travel through our brain?
Does listening to and playing music have any influence on brain development and that of our cognitive functions such as language, memory, empathy?
What if music was more than just entertainment for the majority of us?
But what about the 4 to 5% of the world population who bring together people with amusia for whom rhythms, melodies and harmonies do not reveal any meaning, without these same people showing hearing deficits, language disorders or behavioral problems in general.
Would humanity and its cultural diversities have taken the same paths without music?
Just as it unites and brings people together, music mobilizes a set of brain circuits that underlie various functions, the auditory, motor, visual, tactile areas, emotions and memories. Finally, for several years, there seems to be a particular interest in seeing music as a potential ally in the care of certain patients (premature children, subjects with neurodegenerative diseases, autistic disorders, etc.).
The conference-debate 'Neurosciences and Music' was held at the Institut Pasteur on March 19th, 2022 and aimed to solicit various specialists in neuroscience, listening and musical practice, on these many questions that arouses the music and our brain.

SLEEP: WHY DO WE DREAM AND MEDITATE?
Why do we have to sleep? How is sleep triggered? Why do we dream and what are our dreams for even if they are sometimes forgotten when we wake up? Are the states of mindfulness meditation related to those recognized in our sleep? Finally, what are their impacts on our well-being?
These are the many questions that were addressed during this evening debate as part of Brain Week 2022 in the presence of two speakers from the Lyon Neuroscience Center, Pierre-Hervé Luppi and Antoine Lutz, at 10 rue de Concy, 91330 Yerres
THE SICK BRAIN: STIMULATING THE BRAIN TO TREAT AND BETTER UNDERSTAND HALLUCINATIONS IN SCHIZOPHRENIA
CONFERENCE at the Tours City Hall 1 to 3 rue des Minimes – 37000 Tours
Dr Marine Mondino, Le Vinatier Hospital Center, Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, INSERM U1028/ CNRS UMR5292 / Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University
Hearing voices, also called auditory hallucinations, is common in people with schizophrenia. The voices heard are often experienced as distressing or threatening.
In one out of four patients, these voices are not or not sufficiently reduced by existing treatments.
The work aims to better understand the mechanisms involved in the appearance of these symptoms in order to develop new therapeutic strategies and improve the overall care of patients with schizophrenia. In particular, they study what happens in the brain when these voices arise. They are also studying how this phenomenon is associated with confusing our imagination or thoughts with real events.
To do this, they use techniques that allow to modify brain activity in a transient, safe and painless way. During this conference, there were presented these stimulation techniques and how they use them in psychiatry, both to study the functioning of the brain and to modify its dysfunctions in order to reduce the symptoms.
Winner of the Young Researcher Prize of the Thérèse and René Planiol Foundation, Marine Modino received her Prize before the conference.
EMOTIONS AND SOCIAL BEHAVIOR
What is the link between emotion recognition and social behavior?
Children's ability to recognize emotions (facial and vocal transmission) is an essential factor for social interactions, especially in the context of genetic pathologies.
So what do we know about the links between emotion recognition, social behavior and psychiatric pathologies?

POP’SCIENCES MAG – “UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF EMOTIONS”
They exalt our daily lives and constitute the cornerstone of the exchanges between our brain, our body and what surrounds us.
Emotions are today the subject of numerous research works which aim to identify their mechanisms, their origins and the way in which they influence our actions.
In light of recent advances in the field, we are better prepared than ever to manage and master them. But aren't we also better equipped to counterfeit them, create them, even manipulate them?
For Brain Week, the University of Lyon invited to question the mechanics of our emotions, and those we share with others, through a new edition of its Pop'Sciences Mag "Under the influence of emotions”, to discover online or in paper version.
Pop'Sciences Mag aims to decipher major societal and topical issues through the lighting of different scientific perspectives. This issue proposed on the occasion of Brain Week was produced by the Pop'Sciences team and the local steering committee of the event, under the scientific direction of Rémi Gervais, professor emeritus of the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and member of the Neuroscience Research Center of Lyon.
The mysteries of the human brain deciphered in Lyon
