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. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN EMAIL AND WISH TO EDIT YOUR INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT tsc-2015@helsinki.fi SO THE ORGANIZERS CAN SEND YOU THE INVITATION.

Andrew Duggins

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 →

Lieze Boshoff

PhD Candidate, University of Groningen
Current research involves attention, perception, and the quantum brain. The aim of my research is to investigate the role/effect of perception and consciousness in quantum macro-systems, the mind-matter connection and Psi phenomena. | | Research methodologies include but are not limited to: Behavioural experimental paradigms, EEG and QRNG.

Jacob Jolij

Assistant Professor, University of Groningen
I am a cognitive and social neuroscientist studying how beliefs influence consicous perception and cognition. Moreover, I am interested in the theoretical and experimental investigation of consciousness, including anomalous phenomena (including psi). I use EEG (evoked potentials, time-frequence analyses, single-trial decoding, and neurofeedback), TMS, and behavioral methods (performace, psychophysics, reaction times) as tools in my research...
