Welcome to ’Toward a Science of Consciousness 2015’ the 21st annual international, interdisciplinary conference on the fundamental questions connected with conscious experience.

Toward a Science of Consciousness (TSC) is the largest and longest-running interdisciplinary conference emphasizing broad and rigorous approaches to the study of conscious awareness. Topical areas include neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, biology, quantum physics, meditation and altered states, machine consciousness, culture and experiential phenomenology. Cutting edge, controversial issues are emphasized. Held annually since 1994, the TSC conferences alternate yearly between Tucson, Arizona and various locations around the world. The University of Helsinki is proud to host TSC 2015 in the Great Hall of its neoclassical main building located in the downtown area.

NOTE: SPEAKERS CAN EDIT THEIR OWN PROFILES. EMAIL INVITATIONS TO EDIT PROFILES HAVE BEEN SEND TO ALL SPEAKERS WHOSE EMAIL THE TSC2015 ORGANIZERS HAVE.

Staff Specialist Neurologist, University of Sydney
I completed a theoretical neuroscience PhD at UCL in 2009 entitled 'The Form of Consciousness'. In the PhD I constructed a quantum mathematical formalism of neural signalling that reduces to the conventional neurone doctrine at the level of the single neuron, but at the scale of whole brain brings in an inherently subjective, pure mental state. My more recent work has been in applying the methods of special and general relativity to the geometry... Read More →
