A salon with Axel Cleeremans

Tue 5 Oct / Ideas / 6:30 - 8:30PM

Marvel at the mystery of consciousness as Axel Cleeremans guides us to the heart of what it means to be human. As a world authority in the field of neuroscience, his investigations look into solving how and why our brain becomes self-aware, aware of our thoughts and feelings, and aware of ourselves in the wider world. It’s a radical new look into what makes us ourselves. And something with unknown implications for a range of rapidly evolving technologies. Join the discussion.

He is also President and guiding light of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness. His research is essentially dedicated to the differences between information processing with and without consciousness, particularly in the domain of learning and memory, perception, social cognition, decision-making, and cognitive control. Cleeremans has authored or edited several books dedicated to the study of consciousness, most recently has co-authored the Oxford Companion to Consciousness.
