Words and actions

Words and gestures are – partially – connected inside the brain. It is the result of a study carried out also by, among others, the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste, which sheds light on a debate that has been engaging the scientific community for many years: is cognition "incorporated" (that is, depends on our body) or not? According to Raffaella Rumiati and her team the answer is yes, it is, but only under certain circumstances.

Guided tours at SISSA: a great success

The time of the year devoted to guided tours at SISSA of Trieste involving students has just ended. The initiative has been a great success: bookings were "sold out" almost from the very start and the schools that took part in the initiative expressed great satisfaction.

The involvement of students and post-doc fellows at SISSA has been a key factor, as they all participated enthusiastically as "hosts" and guides. This is the first time that SISSA experiments with this new formula that will be definitely repeated next season
