What is there in our minds beyond the scope of our familiar conscious thoughts? How do the conscious and subconscious poles of our mind interact with each other? In the past, philosophers, psychologists and theologists debated these questions. Of late, a new character has appeared in this colorful cast: a cognitive neuroscientist.In conversation with an American journalist, Lionel Naccache, a neuroscientist, will enunciate the splendors and miseries of conscious and subconscious cognition, which both play a major role in our daily life.

The Parisian company Oh! Oui will perform their short experimental musical Songs for my Brain, composed specifically for this exploration of our brain and the multiple, enigmatic mechanisms.
