You all mining some aspect director of
00:00:02
the nets the research centre and I
00:00:03
would like to welcome you really will
00:00:06
lead to the nest the research centre
00:00:08
and to twelve submission of the Nestle
00:00:10
international nutrition symposium that
00:00:11
will have with you over the next two
00:00:13
days. And let me at this point already
00:00:17
or thank all the people that are
00:00:19
essential to bring the simple with the
00:00:21
symposium together just first of all
00:00:23
the necessary efficient console our
00:00:26
high star scientific a advisory of body
00:00:28
you nicely together with the honestly
00:00:31
could the one of my collaborators and
00:00:34
ultimately couldn't to amount who
00:00:36
designed organised or this symposium
00:00:39
but definitely also very warm welcome
00:00:41
and thanks to the speakers that have
00:00:43
accepted to share their insights their
00:00:45
knowledge the research with us and
00:00:47
stimulate important discussions before
00:00:51
we go into the symposium I would like
00:00:54
to just remind you off a few safety all
00:00:59
topics so we are of course so very
00:01:02
interested but you're not only come
00:01:04
save but you leave say and a please so
00:01:08
what we see as one of the major cause
00:01:10
of accidents in this building as people
00:01:12
not watching the step walking
00:01:13
downstairs looking at their I phone or
00:01:16
other devices at least watches that's
00:01:18
hold the handrails argues your I phone
00:01:21
while you're in a secure situation. Um
00:01:24
what is important for you to know if
00:01:26
there is an incident if you wanna smell
00:01:28
fiery value all want to raise the alarm
00:01:30
in anyway please dial nine nine nine
00:01:34
three simple numbers nine nine nine any
00:01:36
telephone you you will see allocated to
00:01:38
security just eight or what your
00:01:41
observation is and we'll take care of
00:01:43
it if there was an incident the nearest
00:01:45
escape routes are just behind you that
00:01:47
could adore Sylvia marked with the
00:01:49
green sign this is the X itself from
00:01:51
this room another X it is just at the
00:01:53
reception of their collection points
00:01:55
will take care of you there oh back to
00:01:59
the symposium. And the ones that a
00:02:02
company as for a while longer maybe
00:02:04
surprised why again do we have the
00:02:07
tropical rain cognition brain health
00:02:10
and nutrition we had a few years ago
00:02:12
already are we running out of ideas are
00:02:15
running out of steam. And this is not
00:02:17
at all the case on the contrary but in
00:02:20
this field they were so remarkable
00:02:21
progress so insights made over the past
00:02:24
years. But it was absolutely necessary
00:02:27
to bring this topic that are just to
00:02:29
name one of the many on new insights a
00:02:31
much more direct connection of the
00:02:33
brain and the us a body's immune system
00:02:36
through description of lymphatic
00:02:38
vessels in the central nervous system
00:02:41
as done by Jones continues of the
00:02:44
university of of the genie I know I
00:02:46
think that July edition of nature this
00:02:49
here. Um you will hear about a lot of
00:02:51
the new findings from colleague
00:02:54
speakers of you all during the next two
00:02:56
days. I was also thinking or
00:02:58
specifically our chair persons that
00:03:01
will host the sessions we have
00:03:02
organises usual into for half day
00:03:05
sessions. And the chair people today
00:03:08
will be something that's it. And I
00:03:12
think I have risen tomorrow or German
00:03:15
study and too much but five every
00:03:17
special come to Thomas or you at the
00:03:20
same time becomes a member of an
00:03:21
institution console welcome. So much no
00:03:26
I think we share all one passion in
00:03:28
this room either being deeply ingrained
00:03:31
in the field of new biology and
00:03:33
neuroscience or having a passion of it
00:03:36
my background I'm probably as far away
00:03:38
from a biology as I could think however
00:03:41
all my interest was triggered already
00:03:42
only in my studies. And the
00:03:45
knowledgeable brought to me at the time
00:03:47
was apologists issues that is able to
00:03:51
navigate to search crude to find home
00:03:54
by integrating a number of different
00:03:57
informations that all this this is
00:03:59
captures from the environment and from
00:04:02
its own body measuring steps the length
00:04:04
of steps using the compass using
00:04:06
landmarks auditory signals. And those
00:04:09
to be remarkably in search all
00:04:12
displaying patterns that at the time
00:04:14
would describe to me resemble extremely
00:04:16
well the search algorithms that now so
00:04:19
I had taught developed for search of
00:04:21
people that get lost on the moon. So in
00:04:24
the meantime a number of those of
00:04:26
findings that we put in question but
00:04:28
all the latest one was just be
00:04:30
confirmed in a two thousand fifteen
00:04:31
publication was described as a
00:04:34
structured search using mixture of
00:04:36
Boston and redo functions you may
00:04:38
wonder how much brain do you really
00:04:40
need for this one of many biological
00:04:43
functions that that species has to do
00:04:45
what species is it is it less than a
00:04:48
milligram of brain is it more than a
00:04:50
kilo gram up to the nine kilograms that
00:04:52
whales have the answer is surprising is
00:04:55
very little probably two hundred fifty
00:04:57
thousand runs in total. And the speech
00:05:00
is I'm talking about is it does it on
00:05:02
on this is work mostly based on all the
00:05:05
findings of for been under his group
00:05:08
you know the university of Zurich or
00:05:10
what is amazing is that that was
00:05:11
animals without their small train all
00:05:14
can send so many different things and
00:05:16
while going out searching for food or
00:05:18
or ten thousand times the length of
00:05:19
their own body. They will find a way
00:05:22
back to the moment with a waiting and
00:05:24
here house style other ah and moans in
00:05:27
basically a straight line they've many
00:05:29
correction mechanism is if they don't
00:05:31
find them around and so very advanced
00:05:33
search mechanisms that we can alter
00:05:35
depending also on population density.
00:05:38
So quite fascinating but on X two days
00:05:40
will not occupiers very much with bonds
00:05:43
but with humans and adequate models for
00:05:45
human brain brain functioning brain
00:05:47
health. And I'm convinced that we'll
00:05:50
have four very interesting discussions
00:05:52
and and good insights punish this field
00:05:55
is of the growing importance because a
00:05:58
definitely our brain as it basically
00:06:01
gives limitations even in terms of how
00:06:03
much you real on what you to the size
00:06:05
of of the brain casing we have the
00:06:09
enormous nutritional requirements brain
00:06:11
depending on live stage and and
00:06:13
activity level requiring twenty five up
00:06:15
to forty percent of the total body
00:06:17
energy into glucose or causing a lot of
00:06:19
oxidative stress who's this question
00:06:23
and non so very very specific
00:06:25
nutritional support of this important.
00:06:29
And this is what we will talk about for
00:06:31
the next two days without further delay
00:06:33
I want to introduce Susan doesn't Susan
00:06:37
is as well a member of the nets and
00:06:39
that's nutrition counts more
00:06:40
importantly the director of the
00:06:42
recognition student Basel and also
00:06:45
affiliated as university professor in
00:06:47
the you know still puzzled Susan good
