Communication of Science « Des gens qui cherchent » Radio la clé des ondes with André Rosevègue

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program partners with the Radio la Clé des Ondes “des gens qui cherchent” in order to enable its community of students to communicate their research work to a broad audience. Register via the form (at the bottom of the article) and the Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program will get back to you to put you in touch with Mr. Rosevègue!

Radio la cle des ondes

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program partners with the Radio la Clé des Ondesdes gens qui cherchent” in order to enable its community of students to communicate their research work to a broad audience.

Each week, André Rosevègue broadcasts a new research topic with a double aim: to demystify research through the explanation and sharing of cutting edge scientific concepts with the general public and to also highlight the human side; the personal story and the purpose and life path of the researcher that contributed to it.

The questions that he asks seem at first glance to be simple “What are they (researchers) trying to find out? And how will the process of acquiring this knew knowledge make the world a better (or at least less bad) place?” The answers are often remarkable.

As researchers, we know that it is not just a job but a mix of passion and life style that appeals to the idealists that we are. We see science as a team effort, a collective work for a better understanding of the world. Let’s accept the challenge and share a bit of ourselves and what we know with others.

All PhD students of the Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program are invited to be interviewed following the link: https://forms.gle/sNdnr5GchR5rKc7W8 . Please note that this is the perfect opportunity to show case your work to mum, dad and all cousins at family events. On top of that, a certificate of participation will be provided which validates towards training hours for the PhD students.

Our first PhD student to be part of this event was Christopher Stevens; the program from the 10th of May 2021 can be listened to online as a podcast on the la clé des ondes website

Christopher is part of the “Pathophysiology of declarative memory” team lead by Aline Marighetto at the Neurocentre Magendie and his work focus is on the neural and cognitive bases of confirmation bias-induced interference in declarative memory performance.
