Terra Incognita: Explorations of Consciousness

October 6, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In this talk we will learn about the brain and explore the topic of consciousness from a multidisciplinary perspective, incorporating ideas from the basic neurosciences, clinical neurosciences, and philosophy. We will review various disorders of consciousness, including vegetative state, coma, and brain death. Some of the investigatory tools used to evaluate brain function in health and disease will also be discussed.
