On which side of your hypothalamus are you on?

 

Sketch cerveau

Humans are either left-handed or right-handed (or ambidextrous, but let's not complicate things). As you already know, handedness is due to the lateralized functioning of the brain hemispheres. But our brain is far more complicated than this: besides the cerebral hemispheres, there are other brain parts with other functions. In the presentation, I'll show a new approach to understanding the hypothalamic functions related to metabolic and reproductive health.

Can we or should we save a dying language? Linguistic revitalization on the Ryukyu Islands, Japan

Jardin japonais

How many languages are used in Japan? Usually, we tend to think about the country as a homogenous nation with a homogenous language. However, there are many smaller indigenous communities, who have their own distinguished culture and language variety. Unfortunately, because of the Japanese assimilation policy from the XIX. century, these unique and diverse cultures became endangered and generations grew up without learning about the language, customs and knowledge of their ancestors.

In the last 10-20 years however, these indigenous communities started to reclaim their culture, and revive their traditional ways of life. But is it possible to revitalize a language, and if so how can we protect these languages?

How can we give pure happiness? A typical day in the life of a small animal surgeon at a clinic.

Vétérinaire avec chien

Almost every children think once at least in their life, that they want to be a veterinarian. And some of them reach the goal. In my presentation I try to give a view about our small animal surgeon life: the new wave diagnostic and treatment possibilities, and some of my cases. These patients get wound heal treatment or surgical procedures. I want my audience to see how much work it costs till we can give a family member to its bipeds.

Cancer, the Nazis, and your waistline

 

Dessin d'anatomie

We’ve all heard that cancer is the uncontrolled proliferation of tissue due to changes in our genes, often leading to loss of life ; but are you also aware that cancer exhibits very different metabolic properties, and that these are largely responsible for growth and metastasis ? this was pointed out by Otto Warburg before and during WWII, a German-Jew (thus, a Halbjude) scientist who -not a Nazi himself- was adored by Hitler and his regime. Unfortunately, this “earned” him the position of public dismissal and ostracism after the war, orchestrated by his rival, Sydney Weinhouse, an elected member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. After more than 6 decades, the altered metabolic properties of cancer are realized as the Achilles heel, a means for chemotherapeutic manipulation. And how to address this, apart of course from pharmacological interventions targeting the tumor’s enzymes? Your diet!
