Description

Public Lecture: What is Consciousness?

Marcello Massimini, University of Milan

Professor Marcello Massimini is a world leader in consciousness research, a practising neurologist and most importantly a great speaker!

He is part of the Luminous Consortium, a European Union-funded research programme featuring eight academic institutions across Europe. The consortium studies how we can measure and alter consciousness in the electrical brain using non-invasive brain stimulation.

Researcher Cafe

After the lecture, there will be an opportunity to discuss many different aspects of consciousness informally with researchers from the Luminous consortium over a drink. Topics on the menu include:

  • Sleep and anaesthesia
  • Disorders of consciousness
  • Fetal consciousness
  • Theories of consciousness
  • Ethics and philosophy of consciousness

The event is free and open to all members of the public.
