Investigating the neural mechanisms of conscious processing in humans

Time: April 15, 2024,  15.00 – 17.00

Venue: Auditorium 1, Sverdrups hus (the main library), Blindern Campus, University of Oslo

Dr. Claire Sergent is an outstanding consciousness researcher with more than 20 years of experience from the forefront of consciousness research. She worked on the early development of the Global Neuronal Workspace Theory of consciousness research (GNWT), together with the pioneers Jean-Pierre Changeux, Stanislas Dehaene and Lionel Naccache. With her group in Paris, she recently published a study that significantly changed the implications of the GNW theory  (“Bifurcation in brain dynamics reveals a signature of conscious processing independent of reportNature Communications, 2021)
