Note: The study of consciousness is considered a fundamental scientific and philosophical pursuit. How does information processing in the brain generate experience? How do we objectively capture what is, by definition, a subjective event? As philosopher Colin McGinn puts it, how do we get from the water of the brain to the wine of consciousness? I have recently started a Center for Consciousness Science at the UM Medical School to help address these very questions. As an educational activity and the Center (and as a NGP faculty), I am conducting a combined reading/lecture course (NS-704) this upcoming semester on ?The Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness.? The study of consciousness is sometimes decomposed into ?levels of consciousness? (awake vs. asleep vs. anesthetized vs. comatose) and ?states of consciousness? (assuming I am already conscious, why do I see a blue triangle rather than a red square?). We will explore both of these dimensions and likely have some visiting lecturers/discussants to help us along the way. The subject of consciousness motivated many of us to choose the field of neuroscience. I hope you will join me next month as we explore a fascinating question that has scientific, philosophical, clinical, and even existential implications. Even if you don?t want to formally sign up for the course, you are welcomed to attend and participate.
