The Consciousness Research Group

The Consciousness Research Group covers a wide range of multidisciplinary research on consciousness: from philosophical and theoretical questions to empirical cognitive and neuroscientific research, and from state-​​​​level modulation of consciousness by sleep, anesthetics and hypnosis to detailed measurements of the contents, mechanisms and functions of conscious subjective experience. We have three intertwined lines of research: Philosophy of consciousness, Visual consciousness, and Altered states of consciousness. Together, we aim at novel breakthroughs in the philosophy, theo​ry, methodology, and empirical findings on the relationship between consciousness and the brain, leading to progress in the explanation of the nature of consciousness and a better understanding of the place of human consciousness in the physical world.
