Neuroscience of consciousness

From different angles, we are all passionate about the understanding of our conscious experience and the neural processes underneath such intimate phenomenon. Studying consciousness is not only about defining the object of study, but identifying the observer and decoding their viewpoint. The resolution of the mind-body problem since its early conceptions in theology and philosophy to its modern formulations in psychology and neuroscience remains a major scientific and societal challenge.
Broad scope of our research activity is contributing to, by actively shaping, this exciting field of study.
