Paediatric Neurosurgeon Dr George Jallo and Neurologist Dr Adam Hartman discuss the radical brain surgery Mott underwent to remove the damaged half of her brain. Eagleman explains how a cochlear implant works. He exhibits an experimental piece of clothing constructed in his laboratory that attempts to turn sound into patterns of vibration that are felt on the skin of the torso, in an attempt to explore sensory expansion. Jan Sherman, who suffers from a rare genetic disease that has left her quadriplegic, is shown being fitted with a robotic arm controlled by her brain. Eagleman explores brain preservation at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation. Futurologist Max More exhibits and explains cryonic suspension. Eagleman next visits Sebastian Seung at MIT, who describes the connectome. He exhibits his experiments in serial electron microscopy.

Curator of Houston Zoo Kevin Hodge explains the chemical signalling and emergent properties of leafcutter ants, whilst Eagleman compares this to the work of the human brain.

Immortalité, dernière frontière by Sylvie Blum( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Qu’est devenue l’espérance de la vie éternelle? La science et la technique seraient-elles sur le point de concrétiser ce rêve ultime de l’humanité? La cryogénie se perfectionne, le clonage humain devient possible, les recherches sur la duplication numérique du cerveau se multiplient et la réparation des cellules et des organes défaillants paraît désormais concevable. Immortalité, dernière frontière explore et remet en question ces nouveaux espoirs de longévité et leurs enjeux économiques, sociaux et éthiques. Aujourd’hui, la question de l’immortalité, en Occident tout au moins, s’est déplacée du domaine métaphysique vers ceux technique et scientifique. Il est encore question de foi, mais ce n’est pas tout à fait la même. N’y a-t-il pas un besoin persistant de croyance et de sens? Quels miracles attendons-nous encore? Tandis que la vie s’allonge et que l’échéance de la fin s’éloigne, la crainte de la vieillesse n’a-t-elle pas au contraire grandi? Toutes ces questions traversent le film sans que les réponses soient connues d’avance. Dans cette enquête, on découvre ce qui se trame du côté de la science, de la technique et de la médecine.
