Creation of media or tools for science outreach

Thanks to fundings from the Bordeaux Museum of Science Cap Sciences ( and from the Foundation Blaise Pascal (, we have designed a software tool to run small demonstrative scenarios, to help everyone discover the brain functions at the origin of our sensorimotor and vital cognitive behaviors (instinctive and motivated behavior, selection of embodied action, emotional decision-making, seat of self-awareness, etc.). This resource is for a wide audience to whom we can show scenarios, but also co-build multi-media resources to share methods and knowledge (participatory scientific mediation approach) and to discuss these topics. It is also at the disposal of scientific mediators (researchers and beyond) who wish to co-construct such resources, or to present research results involving the animation of anatomy of the nervous system as well as of users or authors of computer code who want to reuse shared technologies to derive other applications, in particular become familiar with the specification languages ​​(here JSON and markdown).
