The Research Institute for Neuroscience, Education and Didactics of Fondazione Patrizio Paoletti, in collaboration with Sapienza University of Rome and the University of Haifa, has organised the first edition of the International Conference on Neurophysiology of Silence (ICONS).

Neuroscientists, philosophers, psychologists, educators and meditation experts will explore the theme of silence from a multidisciplinary approach, both from a theoretical-scientific point of view and from a practical point of view. The goal is to create a shared language, as well as to deepen the understanding of what silence is, and its effects on well-being. The topics will range from the neurophysiology of meditation to the importance of silence in music, to the application of self-awareness in a personal, social and clinical context.

Guided practical experiences, meditation sessions, workshops and artistic performances will accompany the theoretical sessions.
