A group of physicists that includes scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste have shown how to obtain a particular case of a physical effect – so far never observed in reality – whose studies have earned a Nobel Prize. The scientists have also observed the response of the material subject to such effect. These observations will provide precious indications to the experimental physicists in order to verify, in the future, their theory.
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.
A new research coordinated by International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Turin, studies the "code" used by the brain to categorize the objects we see and sheds light on a scientific debate: when, in the process of the brain analysis of visual stimulus, does "shape become meaning"?
The Italian première of the film "Maksimovic. La storia di Bruno Pontecorvo" was held on 11 September, in the Aula Magna of Università La Sapienza. Conceived by Giuseppe Mussardo, a professor of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste, the film retraces the life of the scientist and of the man who embodied the contradictions and the spirit of a tormented century.
Black holes may be less simple and "clean" than how the most authoritative theoretical model describes them. This is what a group of researchers based at the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, and IST, Lisbon, claims in a new article appeared in Physical Review Letters.
According to the scientists' calculations, these celestial bodies may actually have "hair".
It so happens that we interpret other people's emotions based on our own and thus sometimes make mistakes. Luckily our brain is equipped with correction devices: scientists at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, have identified the area where this mechanism should be located.
Lo dicono la scienza e l'esperienza "sul campo": sono la cultura e la conoscenza le vere risposte da dare al razzismo. Si è conclusa una giornata importante alla Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati di Trieste (SISSA) di Trieste dove si è parlato di come la scienza può aiutare a combattere il razzismo.
