About This Event


Event Description:

We put forward the second edition of “The Cinephile Brain” to be held along the BAW2020. This event brings a multidisciplinary scenario that allows the interplay of former and practical knowledge. By means of the universal language of movies and arts, we propose a film festival in which it will be broadcasted films, short movies and documentaries regarding different neuroscience topics. General schedule would be similar to the first edition consisting in: 1. An introductory section of each topic based on neuroscience formal research and yielded by the organizers (Macarena Herrera, PhD student; Natalia Marchese, PhD) or an invited young researcher. 2. Film broadcasting (autobiographical stories, research documentaries, science fiction and cartoons). 3. A closing section of debate and joint construction of ideas about different neuroscience topics. This last part of the activity implies the active play of the attendants, the researches and other invited professionals. For this new edition the planned topics would be: A. Movement pathologies (Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease); B. Stress and anxiety; C. memory, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease; D. stroke; and E. emotions. This last topic will be specially addressed for children with the broadcast of “Inside out” and an art activity proposal (drawing and painting the movie’s characters). The remaining sessions would be addressed for general public and all of them will be free of charge.

Alternate Description:

Utilizando el lenguaje universal del cine y el arte proponemos un ciclo de proyección de cortos y documentales que abarca distintas temáticas de las neurociencias en todas sus variables y desde múltiples perspectivas incluyendo historias autobiográficas, documentales de investigación, ciencia ficción y dibujos animados. Además, cada proyección contará con el apoyo de una explicación introductoria sobre los conceptos generales en cuestión por parte de un investigador del área de las ciencias básicas y un cierre basado en un debate de construcción conjunta de ideas y/o reflexiones respecto a la temática, con especialistas del área e invitados que conviven con el yugo de patologías neurológicas.
