Science Jam Nr. 1: Ein bunter Abend mit Seh- und Hörforschern

Science Jam Nr. 1: Ein bunter Abend mit Seh- und Hörforschern

Wissenschaft lebt vom Experimentieren. Viele Entdeckungen geschehen, wenn unterschiedliche Dinge zusammentreffen und auf unerwartete Weise miteinander reagieren. Dieses Prinzip greifen die „Science Jams“ auf: Die neue Veranstaltungsreihe des Bernstein Center Freiburg und des Exzellenzclusters BrainLinks-BrainTools der Universität Freiburg präsentiert Wissenschaft in ungewöhnlichen Zusammenhängen – weitab von Hörsälen und Seminarräumen.

 ‘Brain waves’ challenge area-specific view of brain activity

‘Brain waves’ challenge area-specific view of brain activity

Our understanding of brain activity has traditionally been linked to brain areas – when we speak, the speech area of the brain is active. New research by an international team of psychologists led by David Alexander and Cees van Leeuwen (Laboratory for Perceptual Dynamics), including researchers from the Bernstein Center and BrainLinks-BrainTools at the University of Freiburg, shows that this view may be overly rigid. The entire cortex, not just the area responsible for a certain function, is activated when a given task is initiated. Furthermore, activity occurs in a pattern: Waves of activity roll from one side of the brain to the other.
