Speaking seems to be an easy process, almost working by itself. And yet, our brain is very active when we speak. But how does it work? In 2022 a #magnetoencephalography MEGIN will join the Human Neuroscience Platform of the Campus Biotech. And for the first time in Switzerland, MEG researchers will see what’s happening in the brain as it happens.
Born from the collaboration with the Flux Laboratory and Prof Didier Grandjean from CISA, UNIGE – NCCR Evolving Language, DOUZE MILLE VINGT refers to the internal perception of sound and acts on the capacity to feel the internal physiological activity as indicators of emotions, of the body state.
Some of our researchers have personal links to Ukraine and our thoughts are with you. Like many others around the world, we stand together in unity against aggression and violence, and in favour of peace, respect and our common humanity.
It’s a first in Switzerland: the Human Neuroscience Platform (HNP) will host a magnetoencephalography (MEG) facility next summer with the purchase of a MEGIN TRIUX™ neo, a state-of-the-art scanner that allows non-invasive analysis of brain activity. This acquisition is the result of a partnership between several institutions located at the Campus Biotech and promises new […]
For the #WomeninScienceDay #IDWGS2022 we are happy to share with you three testimonies from our female researchers from the University of Zurich Franziska Wegdell, Nicole Tamer & Chiara Barbieri!
What if video games, instead of being an obstacle to literacy, could actually help children improve their reading abilities? A team from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) has joined forces with scientists from the University of Trento in Italy to test an action video game for children, which would enhance reading skills. The results, published […]
What if it were possible to decode the internal language of individuals deprived of the ability to express themselves? This is the objective of a team of neuroscientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG).
Researchers from the University of Lausanne and the EPFL are calling on the Swiss population to annotate emojis. The study aims to unravel the way in which we share our emotions via instant messaging. This is an innovative research topic that is particularly interesting for the preservation of Switzerland’s linguistic heritage.
Sciences Advances wrote a focus article presenting the study with NCCR members Peter Ranacher, Balthasar Bickel, Ken Shimizu and a larger international team. This is the 5th focus piece in 2021 (& only non-biomedicine paper), which highlights its importance.
