    Weizmann Global Gathering 2014: Partners in Creativity at Lincoln Center, Prof. Elad Schneidman

    In his role as part of the science and modern dance performance at Lincoln Center, Prof. Elad Schneidman describes how he is ""learning to read the language of the brain"" – revealing how the brain makes words, sentences, paragraphs. As he speaks, dancers move about him – as individuals, then building on their connections – in an interpretation of this language.

    Back to Basics, Forward to the Future

    The Weizmann Institute conducts basic science research, but what, exactly, is that? Go with Profs. Uri Alon, Roy Bar-Ziv, Israel Dostrovsky, Shafi Goldwasser, Yair Reisner, Leo Sachs, Idit Shachar, Eran Segal, Ady Stern, and Dan Tawfik on a tour of basic science research: what is, how it has benefitted humankind, and how it will likely shape the future.

    Weizmann Global Gathering 2014: Partners in Creativity at Lincoln Center, Prof. Daniel Zajfman

    Institute President Prof. Daniel Zajfman tells the crowd that they are privy to a unique show: the collaboration between neuroscientists and modern dancers will play exactly twice, once in New York City, once in Tel Aviv. He compares scientists and dancers, saying that they both have to work extremely hard; need collaboration; and must have inspiration.

    Limitless: Fulfilling the Potential of the Human Brain

    The human brain is “limitless” – and yet, sometimes things go wrong. In this video, Prof. Noam Sobel, Dr. Assaf Tal, Prof. Michal Schwartz, Prof. Alon Chen, Dr. Tali Kimchi, Dr. Ofer Yizhar, Prof. Daniel Zajfman, and Prof. Yadin Dudai talk about studying the brain in health and disease, always learning “what it means to be human, what it means to think, what it means to remember.”

    Weizmann Global Gathering 2014: Partners in Creativity at Lincoln Center, Prof. Noam Sobel

    Prof. Noam Sobel introduces the sensory into the science and dance program: while all our senses are involved in any experience, it is the brain that lets us smell, or hear, or touch. His studies on the brain mechanism behind the sense of smell could lead to early diagnosis of diseases. His dancers are both mechanical and fluid, conveying the way the brain works – and not.

    What's the Snail's Secret of Regeneration?

    Identifying the proteins that enable snails to regrow their organs could help neuroscientists find ways to heal the brain, providing new treatments for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The Weizmann Institute's Prof. Michael Fainzilber explains.
