The Prada Foundation in Milan hosts a series of open, online discussions on topics related the to brain with experts in specific areas for its “Human Brains” project. “Conversations” events are video interventions given by international scientists, philosophers and researchers followed by online conversations involving forms of interaction with the remote audience. “Conversations” is presented as an open platform for experimenting inclusive modes of exchange between scientists and scholars from different fields and a wide community of students, researchers, and individuals interested in neurosciences and brain studies in general.
Each conversation consists of a 40-minute online debate in which two researchers dialogue with each other via live streaming on a specific topic, coordinated by a moderator. Ten days before the conversation, speeches by the two experts introducing the topic will be available online.
The next forum will be held with Fulton Schools Associate Professor Jeffrey Kleim and Alvaro Pascual Leone from Harvard University. This is the fifth Conversations event and will focus on the relationship between genetics and the possibility of being more efficient in learning or in sports, which lead to a big ethical debate.
