I am very proud to advertise this panel discussion about women in science, to be held on Friday, 8th June 2018, 11:30, at the salle Jaurès of the École Normale Supérieure, 29 rue d'Ulm, 75005 Paris.

Where is it harder for women, across career stages? How do implicit biases shape our attitudes towards our colleagues? How can we reduce inequalities? What organisations and support are available for women?

Our goal is to join the international conversation about the place of women in science, and academia more broadly. We have brought together speakers of different fields, at different stages of their career, and with a diverse experience of work environments. Thus, we aim to get a better understanding of the challenges faced by women, and of the strategies and solutions that can be implemented to reduce inequalities, and help everyone prosper in science and academia.

Everyone is invited! Students, post-docs, PIs, whatever your gender, or field of research, as this conversation is relevant for the whole of academia.

Organised together with Naomi Havron and Si Berrebi, and sponsored by DEC-Life & DEC, ENS.

Last Monday, 23rd April 2018, I participated in a panel discussion on free will at the London School of Economics, organised by The Forum of European Philosophy and the British Society for the Philosophy of Science.

Is everything we do caused by unconscious brain processes that we cannot control? Has neuroscience shown free will is an illusion?
What happens to moral and criminal responsibility if a defendant can always argue ‘my brain made me do it’?
Is free will uniquely human, or something we share with other animals?

Together with the chair, philosopher Jonathan Birch, the psychiatrist Matthew Broome, and the philosopher Helen Steward, we discussed these questions, among others...

Losing Control in Social Situations: How the Presence of Others Affects Neural Processes Related to Sense of Agency

New article out about our recent fMRI study, led by Frederike Beyer, and in collaboration with Steve Fleming and Patrick Haggard, in which we investigated the neural substrates of why we fell less in control of our own actions in the presence of other agents.
