INTERDISCIPLINARNI “THINK TANK” ZA KREATIVNU ZNANOST

Mediteranski institut za istraživanje života – MedILS je institut za prirodne znanosti, zamišljen kao međunarodni centar izvrsnosti za molekularnu biologiju. Smješten je u park šumi Marjan, na jednoj od najljepših obala Jadranskog mora. MedILS nudi jedinstvene preduvjete za održavanje radionica i konferencija visoke kvalitete. Institut ima nekoliko potpuno opremljenih dvorana.

Gosti su smješteni u udobnim sobama s kupaonicom. Sve sobe su klimatizirane, imaju telefon i high-speed Internet pristup. Tri obroka dnevno (doručak, ručak i večera) i kava u pauzi kod predavanja mogu se organizirati u Institutu.

Grupni rad se može održati izvan Instituta, u parku gdje su dostupne klupe, stolovi i bežični pristup internetu. Okoliš pruža mnoge mogućnosti za različite aktivnosti u slobodno vrijeme, uključujući i kupanje na obližnjim plažama, trčanje i planinarenje u park šumi Marjan, ili igranje košarke na košarkaškom igralištu Instituta. Grad Split, sa svojom slikovitom starom gradskom jezgrom, nudi obilje restorana, barova i trgovina, a nalazi se na 20 minuta pješice ili 5 minuta autobusom od Instituta.

The Aging Mind

The theme provides a framework for posing many intriguing and timely questions and is an opportunity for novel considerations, particularly through an interdisciplinary exchange among biology, neuroscience, philosophy and other related disciplines. There are many open questions and here are only some of them: Does aging of the brain and of the mind run in accord? If it is justified to say that the brain is ‘corroding’ with aging, does it necessarily mean that the ‘corrosion’ hits the mental too? What does it mean at all for mind to age? How aging impacts cognition? Can we mentally impact our behavior so that we slow down aging or speed it up? Why should we long for rejuvenation of the mind if mature minds can accomplish what inexperienced ones cannot possibly achieve? What are consequences of aging for embodiment and enaction? Does mentality, in a way, emancipate from the biological as it gets shaped more and more by culture? As the population ages, can we conceive of a sort of collective mentality marked by the properties of being ‘old’? How do old minds cope with the challenges of the new world?

An attempt will be made in recognizing and affirming qualities and potentialities of the mature minds that in many respects prove superior to the inexperienced ones. As the future belongs to ‘aged minds’, it is our motivation to try to understand the phenomenon better by recourse to the most recent research in the field. It also becomes clear that the issue bears not only philosophical, but also social, political, and economic relevance.
