About This Event


Event Description:

ANTONIO CERASA
Neuroscientist and Researcher of the National Research Council – CNR.
Winner of the 2017 Scientific Disclosure Award ‘Giancarlo Dosi’

The word “Neuroscience” now resides everywhere, becoming a commonly used term. The Magic Box is the first book that attempts to tell how this discipline was born, starting with a tea taken with the great over 100-year-old neuropsychologist, Brenda Milner, in her home in Montreal, passing through the stories of the granddaughter of the greatest neuroanatomist in history, Costantino Economo, and ending with the adventures of the creator of the first neuroscience center, the neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield.
Around these three scientists will turn the stories and discoveries of other protagonists who, in just 50 years, have revolutionized the way of conceiving the human being. Revolution that today is ready to explode in new theories about the human mind, such as the fractal dimension and artificial intelligence.

Vincitore del premio di Divulgazione Scientifica 2017 ‘Giancarlo Dosi’

La parola “Neuroscienze” risiede ormai in ogni luogo, diventando un termine di uso comune. “La scatola magica” è il primo libro che tenta di raccontare com’è nata questa disciplina, cominciando da un tè preso con la grande neuropsicologa ultracentenaria, Brenda Milner, nella sua casa di Montreal, passando per i racconti della nipote del più grande neuroanatomista della storia, Costantino Economo, e finendo con le avventure del creatore del primo centro di neuroscienze, il neurochirurgo Wilder Penfield.
Intorno a questi tre scienziati gireranno le storie e le scoperte di altri protagonisti che, in soli 50 anni, hanno rivoluzionato il modo di concepire l’essere umano. Rivoluzione che oggi è pronta a esplodere in nuove teorie sulla mente umana, come la dimensione frattale e l’intelligenza artificiale.
