#2 Hemispheric Lateralization and Attentional Mechanisms

The two lectures and the live conversation streamed on 21 October 2021 investigate the distinction between the functions of brain’s right and left hemispheres and attention mechanisms. The event saw the participation of Guido Gainotti (Professor Emeritus of Neurology at the Department Neurology of Policlinico Gemelli, Università Cattolica, Rome) and Paolo Bartolomeo (Director at the Inserm, the French state biomedical research institute, and at the PICNIC Lab at the ICM – Paris Brain Institute in the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital).
