Body-Brain Waves

Body-Brain physiological waves meet the waves of the Amalfi Coast

For decades now, both cognitive and translational neuroscience have corroborated the pivotal role of neural oscillations in perception, cognition, and motor behavior in health and pathology. However, these research lines have almost exclusively showcased the tight link between brain activity and behavior, while neglecting the essential and modulatory influence of the body and its peripheral physiological activity.

During this conference, we will present and discuss recent exciting evidence showing that neural excitability, information processing, and overt behavior are distinctly influenced by physiological body signals. This invites the combined assessment of respiration, heart, and gastrointestinal rhythms together with brain activity and promises to unravel dynamic and holistic interactions between peripheral and brain physiology that critically informs and advances our understanding of how we perceive, act, and evaluate the dynamically changing environment we live in.
