Abstract

Repetition has a major role in human culture. In lullabies and prayers, in protests and war cries: from the cradle to the grave, repetition is the companion to life’s essentials. In a constantly revolving world there is no pure repetition. Events never repeat themselves precisely. This is equally true of repetition in Literature and Art, where the use of repetition is varied and frequent. How does repetition work? And how can it be of use? Déjà Vu unravels these questions in fifteen chapters ranging from film remakes and Baudelaire to the offer of Abraham and David Lodge, Small World. Déjà Vu shows that repetition has been used worldwide through all times and cultures in visual arts, poetry, music, literature and motion pictures.

Abstract

Le foret (ou la sonde, ou le trépan) est toujours le même, mais les gisements découverts, les couches, les strates, les filons sont toujours nouveaux, toujours autres. Au terme de chaque avancée ou creusement, on croit le sujet épuisé et l'auteur condamné à se répéter indéfiniment. Mais plus il creuse, plus il fore, et plus jaillit la nouveauté, à la fois semblable à ce qui précède et tout à fait spécifique. La théorie mimétique repose sur un principe reçu comme simple, mais qui permet parado...

Abstract

Iteration:Again documents and reflects upon a series of thirteen temporary public art commissions by twenty-one Australian and international artists that took place across Tasmania from September 18 to October 15, 2011. Produced by Contemporary Art Spaces Tasmania and David Cross, in conjunction with seven partner curators, Iteration:Again presents a compelling array of temporary artworks in largely unexpected places throughout Tasmania. Working to transform our experience of place for a moment in time, each commission seeks to address how temporary interventions or responses by artists to public sites, environments and buildings can serve to open up new ways of understanding Tasmania as a place with very complex cultural, social and spatial resonances. How it might be possible to introduce transformative elements that challenge the notion of a fixed or definitive artwork grounded in one location? By asking the artists to make four different chapters or ‘iterations’ over the course of a four-week period, David Cross challenged each practitioner to think through how change or processes of transition may function to make the art experience an unstable and contingent one. This idea of incorporating change into the work highlights a growing interest by artists in emphasizing art as a potentially theatrical or even fictive medium with the audience experiencing different moments or stages of encounter over a number of weeks. The idea provided for the possibility of narrative sequences, formal investigations, or temporal shifts that saw key additions or subtractions over time. Each commission sought to recast our understanding of public artwork from a discrete event or viewing experience, to a suite of experiences.

Abstract

Exception faite de quelques rares travaux, le monde du rock a souvent été observé à distance. Le phénomène de masse a prévalu sur la pratique concrète. Cet ouvrage vise à inverser cette tendance. À cette fin, il propose de s'intéresser à la réalité concrète de la pratique rock à partir d'un important travail d'ethnographie sociologique. Cette réalité se compose d'un mix hétéroclite d'acteurs, d'objets et de dispositifs. C'est la raison pour laquelle cette enquête de terrain s'emploie à dresser la morphologie d'une multiplicité d'objets produits par le monde du rock (instruments, disques, flyers, fanzines, etc.), à éclairer le fonctionnement et l'équipement d'un ensemble de lieux (locaux de répétition, salles de concerts, magasins de disques, studios d'enregistrement, etc.), à présenter la genèse et la fonction de certains dispositifs (répétition, concerts, politiques culturelles, programmes de soutien, circuits de distribution des œuvres, etc.) et à recueillir le discours des acteurs (musiciens, disquaires, organisateurs de concerts, rédacteurs de fanzines, label managers, amateurs, etc.). À partir de quoi, la combinaison des données obtenues permettra de rendre compte du fonctionnement du monde du rock, dans sa double dimension d'expérience individuelle et collective.

Abstract

In the 19th century, ground-breaking observations on aphasia by Broca and Wernicke suggested that language function depends on the activity of the cerebral cortex. At the same time, Wernicke and Lichtheim also elaborated the first large-scale network model of language which incorporated long-range and short-range (transcortical connections) white matter pathways in language processing. The arcuate fasciculus (dorsal stream) was traditionally viewed as the major language pathway for repetition, but scientists also envisioned that white matter tracts travelling through the insular cortex (ventral stream) and transcortical connections may take part in language processing. Modern cognitive neuroscience has provided tools, including neuroimaging, which allow the in vivo examination of short- and long-distance white matter pathways binding cortical areas essential for verbal repetition. However, this state of the art on the neural correlates of language repetition has revealed contradictory findings, with some researchers defending the role of the dorsal and ventral streams, whereas others argue that only cortical hubs (Sylvian parieto-temporal cortex [Spt]) are crucially relevant. An integrative approach would conceive that the interaction between these structures is essential for verbal repetition. For instance, different sectors of the cerebral cortex (e.g., Spt, inferior frontal gyrus/anterior insula) act as hubs dedicated to short-term storage of verbal information or articulatory planning and these areas in turn interact through forward and backward white matter projections. Importantly, white matter pathways should not be considered mere cable-like connections as changes in their microstructural properties correlate with focal cortical activity during language processing tasks. Despite considerable progress, many outstanding questions await response. The articles in this Research Topic tackle many different and critical new questions, including: (1) how white matter pathways instantiate dialogues between different cortical language areas; (2) what are the specific roles of different white matter pathways in language functions in normal and pathological conditions; (3) what are the language consequences of discrete damage to branches of the dorsal and ventral streams; 4) what are the consequences (e.g., release from inhibition) of damage to the left white matter pathways in contralateral ones and viceversa; (5) how these pathways are reorganised after brain injury; (5) can the involvement/sparing of white matter pathways be used in outcome prediction and treatment response; and (5) can the microstructure of white matter pathways be remodelled with intensive rehabilitation training or biological approaches.This Research Topic includes original studies, and opinion and review articles which describe new data as well as provocative and insightful interpretations of the recent literature on the role of white matter pathways in verbal repetition in normal and pathological conditions. A brief highlight summary of each is provided below.

Abstract

Current theories of visual change detection emphasize the importance of conscious attention to detect unexpected changes in the visual environment. However, an increasing body of studies shows that the human brain is capable of detecting even small visual changes, especially if such changes violate non-conscious probabilistic expectations based on repeating experiences. In other words, our brain automatically represents statistical regularities of our visual environmental. Since the discovery of the auditory mismatch negativity (MMN) event-related potential (ERP) component, the majority of research in the field has focused on auditory deviance detection. Such automatic change detection mechanisms operate in the visual modality too, as indicated by the visual mismatch negativity (vMMN) brain potential to rare changes. VMMN is typically elicited by stimuli with infrequent (deviant) features embedded in a stream of frequent (standard) stimuli, outside the focus of attention. In this research topic we aim to present vMMN as a prediction error signal. Predictive coding theories account for phenomena such as mismatch negativity and repetition suppression, and place them in a broader context of a general theory of cortical responses. A wide range of vMMN studies has been presented in this Research Topic. Twelve articles address roughly four general sub-themes including attention, language, face processing, and psychiatric disorders. Additionally, four articles focused on particular subjects such as the oblique effect, object formation, and development and time-frequency analysis of vMMN. Furthermore, a review paper presented vMMN in a hierarchical predictive coding framework. Each paper in this Research Topic is a valuable contribution to the field of automatic visual change detection and deepens our understanding of the short term plasticity underlying predictive processes of visual perceptual learning.
