Musicians: Born or made? 
Scientific workshop on Music and Talent. Followed by a free concert-conference at the Salle Claude Champagne (Université de Montréal)

The role of natural endowment and hard work in musical performance is one of the oldest and most contentious issue in both science and society. Up to the 20th century, innate talent was associated to musicianship. Over the last century, the prevalent view has been that intensive practice is key. The goal of this workshop is to examine whether music practice can account for individual differences in musical abilities or if we should also acknowledge the importance of innate predispositions.

In many pathologies of the nervous system, there is a common event - cells called microglia are activated from surveillant watchmen into fighters.  Microglia are the immune cells of the nervous system, ingesting and destroying pathogens and damaged nerve cells. Until now little was known about the molecular mechanisms of microglia activation despite this being a critical process in the body.
