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.

Co-head of research
Espoo, Finland
My areas of expertise include neuroinformatics, quantitative EEG diagnostics, advanced methods of EEG/MEG analysis and systemic psychophysiology. Currently my main research interest is in the area of consciousness studies. Togethre with my twin-brother Andrew Fingelkurts we have formulated a framework of "Operational Architectonics (OA) of Brain-Mind Functioning" which is based on the joint analysis of cognitive and electromagnetic data (EEG and MEG). According to OA every conscious phenomenon is brought to existence by the joint operations of many functional and transient neuronal assemblies in the brain. Further, the functioning of the brain is always operational (made up of operations), and its structure is characterized by a hierarchy of operations of increasing complexity: from single neurons to synchronized neuronal assemblies.
