Les Surprises du Cerveau n°2


A visit through your emotions

“In vivo” Laboratory

For the first time in Europe 300 humans connect simultaneously with Head Mounted Displays (HMD) for a real time performance, that is a voyage in the human brain.

Pr Antoine Widmer from HES-HO, the research scientist Corrado Cali and Pr Pierre Magistretti from Kaust university will use the Unity technology to create an “in vivo” laboratory and collect datas on the attendees’ emotional feedback. A research paper on the experience will be published after the experience.

In a second act, composer-pianist Richard Rentsch and musician-neuroscientist Dr. Nathaniel Evans will explore the intersection of music, film, and emotion. This participative, live performance will be followed by round-table discussions between neuroscientists and artists who will explore audio-visual couplings and their effect on emotion.
