As part of the World Congress of Neurology (WCN), held in Montreal from October 13 to 19, 2023, Simone took part in a concert-conference with Robert Zatorre and the musicians of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal.

They answered questions such as: How does music give us so much pleasure? Why does the rhythm of music have such an effect on us?
