Ethique et neurosciences – L’interface homme-machine

En partenariat avec la Société des Neurosciences

Les enjeux des recherches en neurosciences sont de 2 ordres, étroitement liés. Il s’agit d’une part, de relever le défi de dévoiler l’organisation et le fonctionnement de l’organe complexe que représente notre cerveau et plus généralement de notre système nerveux, à toutes les étapes de la vie et dans ses nombreuses fonctions, ouvrant une fenêtre sur la connaissance du soi et de nos comportements. Cette connaissance, en dehors de tout contexte pathologique, permet d’envisager une amélioration de certaines de nos facultés pour favoriser l’épanouissement de la personne (mieux apprendre, communiquer, interagir avec notre environnement, etc.), sans pour autant chercher à dépasser nos limites biologiques comme le prône le transhumanisme. D’autre part, les neuroscientifiques tentent de répondre à des besoins thérapeutiques non satisfaits, avec la nécessité d’apporter de nouvelles options pour combattre les nombreuses atteintes et maladies qui affectent le système nerveux. Les conséquences entravent souvent l’autonomie relationnelle de la personne et altèrent sa qualité de vie. S’y ajoutent les coûts induits par le suivi médical, évalués dans la Communauté Européenne à près de 800 milliards d’Euros, soit plus d’un tiers des dépenses de santé. Devant l’afflux des données issues de la recherche en neurosciences, le développement d’outils permettant d’appréhender et de modifier le fonctionnement du système nerveux, et les implications sociétales de ces avancées, notre responsabilité de neuroscientifique est de soulever les nombreux questionnements éthiques qui se posent. Il convient de faire la part entre utilisation thérapeutique et cosmétique des données, les possibilités effectives et les fantasmes.
L’évocation de ces quelques aspects de la recherche développée dans le champ des neurosciences justifie une approche éthique appropriée. Il convient d’anticiper les conséquences et l’impact sociétal d’évolutions technologiques qui parfois peuvent être considérées intrusives, voire de nature à mettre en cause les libertés individuelles, faute d’un encadrement approprié. L’acceptabilité de ces avancées dont l’intérêt en termes de prévention et de traitements s’avère évident, est conditionné par le souci d’éviter tout risque de dérive ou d’usage inconsidéré. Les États généraux de la bioéthique peuvent favoriser une concertation indispensable entre chercheurs, praticiens, usagers de la santé et société, dans la perspective de développer une approche responsable de l’innovation en neurosciences.

6th conference of the Association for Research in Neuroeducation

The 6th conference of the Association for Research in Neuroeducation will be held on June 6-8, 2018, at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, and organized by the Laboratory for the Psychology of the Child Development and Education (LaPsyDÉ) at the CNRS and the Paris Descartes University. The first day will consist of general public conferences (in French only) around the topic of « Neuroeducation: a new science for school? », and will aim to share and discuss the latest progress in the field of neuroeducation with students, teachers and other experts in education. The goal of this day will be to strengthen the links between the members of the educational community by facilitating the exchange of ideas and expertise and the dialog between the lab and the school. In addition to conferences given by several researchers in developmental psychology, education sciences and developmental cognitive neuroscience, round table sessions will allow to reflect on the future school.

The scientific symposium will be held over the following two days (Day 2 and 3), and will aim at presenting the findings of researchers who manage to reconcile the constraints of the cognitive neuroscience techniques with the investigation of questions in the field of education at school and at the university. Our keynote speaker will be Bert de Smedt, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL).

For the scientific symposium, we welcome oral presentations submissions and poster submissions from researchers and students working in developmental psychology, education sciences and developmental neuroscience.
The online abstract submission is open until February 28th, 2018.
Abstracts should not exceed 300 words in length. The full abstract will be reviewed by the conference scientific committee and the result of this review will be communicated on March 28th, 2018.

Workshop in Integrative Approaches in Neurodegeneration

The Workshop in Integrative Approaches in Neurodegeneration is organized in the frame of the FlySMALS consortium, funded by the 2013 JPND Transnational call for “European research projects for Cross-Disease Analysis of Pathways related to Neurodegenerative Diseases”, which come to an end this year. The workshop aims to disseminate and integrate the results of the research consortium with state-of-the-art research in the field, promoting the joint presentation and discussion of relevant research topics by a panel of international experts, including members of other consortia funded through the same JPND call.

The program targets a broad audience of basic, experimental, computational and clinical scientists, in the spirit of the JNPD Cross-Disease Analysis call, aiming to:
promote the analysis of diseases across traditional clinical boundaries
combine fundamental, pre-clinical and clinical experimental approaches  with computational approaches
re-define clinical phenotypes and new approaches in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
identify commonalities and differences molecular pathways underlying neurodegenerative diseases.

The workshop will bring together 20 invited speakers and  50 registered participants, providing an ideal environment for dynamic interactions promoting the exchange of expertise across areas, supporting the conceptual development of novel integrative research approaches that will contribute to the future progress in neurodegenerative disease research. Participants will be able to present their work at a poster section and through short talks from selected abstracts.

Join us in the wonderful city of Lisbon for an exciting inter-disciplinary program at the forefront of neurodegenerative disease research.

CONGRESS BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019

On behalf of the ISCBFM President and the Local Organizing Committee, we invite the members of the French Neuroscience Society to join us at YOKOHAMA BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019, the 29th International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow, Metabolism and Function and the 14th International Conference on Quantification of Brain Function with PET to be held in Yokohama, Japan from July 4th – 7th 2019. Following the tradition of previous meetings, BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019 will cover numerous aspects within the area of neuroscience research, particularly those related to brain function and metabolism, cerebral blood flow, the function of the neurovascular unit and the blood-brain barrier, brain imaging, brain repair, and cerebrovascular pathology.

Our goal is to present the state-of-the art and novel discoveries that will increase our understanding of brain function under physiological and pathological conditions through basic, translational, and clinical investigation. Leading scientist in these fields, members of the International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism (ISCBFM, http://iscbfm.org) and other exceptional scientists will participate as in our previous biannual meetings. The program committee is actively working to create an engaging scientific program that will be of interest to scientists working in all fields of neuroscience, from basic to clinical and applied research.

Yokohama, the second largest city in Japan, is located next to Tokyo along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. The city has long prospered as an international port city trading with foreign countries that opened to the world in 1859, as it had favorable facilities to host ships from abroad. Since that time, Yokohama has been vigorously acquiring new cultures and information from other countries, and it developed a reputation as the source for new information from abroad that was disseminated around Japan, hence its nickname as the birthplace of Japan’s modern culture.
