The nature of consciousness is considered one of science’s most perplexing and persistent mysteries. We know the subjective experience of consciousness, but where does it begin? What is its purpose?
Today, the general assumption within the field of neuroscience is that all aspects of consciousness arise solely from interactions among neurons in the brain. At IONS, our research team proposed that there are problems with the assumptions of this materialistic worldview. We are exploring the possibility that consciousness extends beyond the physical brain and body.
Join us for ConnectIONS Live on November 11th at 11 AM PST where IONS Scientist, Arnaud Delorme, PhD, will discuss his research and share with us how we can contemplate new ways of thinking about consciousness.
