A novel research program on traumatic memories about the Paris attacks of Nov. 13, 2015
How will the traumatic events of the Paris terrorist attacks of Nov. 13, 2015, evolve in people's memories, whether collective or individual? How does individual memory feed on collective memory and vice versa? Is it possible, by studying cerebral markers, to predict which victims will develop post-traumatic stress disorder and which will recover more quickly? These are a few of the questions addressed in the ambitious 13-Novembre program, coordinated by the CNRS, Inserm and héSam University.
