Abstract : We propose a participatory science outreach approach allowing us to co-construct with our audiences resources aimed at understanding and demystifying the most disruptive results obtained regarding human brain by the conjunction of computer science, applied mathematics and neuroscience (computational neuroscience). The context is that of science and technology with a heavy societal impact, for which there is a strong need to allow everyone to build models of representation of these results and to forge an enlightened citizen's vision on these subjects. We rely here on our experience in sharing scientific culture on these subjects and our ability to create large diffusion content and resources, easy to appropriate and to operate. We propose to discover the models of the cerebral functions at the origin of our sensorimotor and vital cognitive behaviors (instinctive and motivated behavior, selection of embodied action, emotional decision-making or not, sites of self-awareness, etc. ) through : - a course of evolving content each time giving minimal key ideas on these subjects, also showing the simple use of mathematical concepts, - a Web-application (3D visualization of the brain in synergy with multi-media content and explanatory texts) with the possibility of interacting with the content. e.g., quizzes. The implementation is a free and open code, easily reusable by anyone with basic computing skills. This is also in itself a tool for learning the code, in addition to the acquisition of skills in integrative neuroscience, and it is a lever for co-creation.
