Proposal summary. Understanding the psychological and neurobiological determinants of consciousness is fundamental. Yet, the main trend focusing on how the front of the brain (prefrontal cortex) interacts with the back (sensory cortex) for accessing perceptual contents limits our understanding of the information coding schemas underlying consciousness. Here, we explore these informational properti ...

Experimentation in mesocosms is arguably the single most powerful approach to obtain a mechanistic quantitative understanding of ecosystem-level impacts of stressors in complex systems, especially when embedded in long-term observations, theoretical models and experiments conducted at other scales. AQUACOSM builds on an established European network of mesocosm research infrastructures (RI), the FP ...

Brain-viscera interactions underlie subjectivity (BRAVIUS)

Start date: Dec 1, 2015, End date: Nov 30, 2020,

Subjectivity defines the subject who is perceiving, feeling, thinking, acting, and is essential to understand the conscious mind from the inside. However, subjectivity, or non-reflective first-person perspective, is not identified as a core concept in cognitive neuroscience and its neural basis remain largely unknown. BRAVIUS offers a unified framework to appraise both the concept and the neural m ...

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

The magnetization of hydrogen nuclei in H2O constitutes the basis of most applications of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI.) Only ortho-water, where the two proton spins are in states that are symmetric with respect to permutation, features NMR-allowed transitions. Para-water is analogous to para-hydrogen, where the two proton spins are anti-symmetric with respect to permutation. The objective of t ...

Cognitive Control of a Hearing Aid (COCOHA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

We propose to design a hearing aid system that can be mentally (cognitively) steered so as to allow a more “natural communication” for the hearing disabled, a population that forms over 7% of Europeans (50 million people). Hearing disabilities lead to a degraded quality of life, exclusion, and associated costs for society. Hearing aids (and cochlear implants), while effective in quiet, are still u ...

Lattices: algorithms and cryptography (LattAC)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Contemporary cryptography, with security relying on the factorisation and discrete logarithm problems, is ill-prepared for the future: It will collapse with the rise of quantum computers, its costly algorithms require growing resources, and it is utterly ill-fitted for the fast-developing trend of externalising computations to the cloud. The emerging field of *lattice-based cryptography* (LBC) ad ...

Progress in understanding brain functions rely in great part on filling the conceptual and experimental gaps between different levels of analysis, from single neurons to behaviour. Thus, “rate models”, units of representations are the mean activity of large neural populations, while function and behaviour emerge from the responses of very large networks. While experimental investigations have foc ...

Morphogenesis is the remarkable process by which a developing organism acquires its shape. While molecular and genetic studies have been highly successful in explaining the cellular basis of development and the role of biochemical gradients in coordinating cell fate, understanding morphogenesis remains a central challenge for both biophysics and developmental biology. Indeed, shape is imposed by s ...
