Consciousness Research Interest Group
What is consciousness? Will we ever be able to quantitatively measure and to understand the nature of consciousness? The Consciousness Research Interest Group provides a platform for the scientists and staff at NIH and the extramural community to discuss, discover, collaborate, and stimulate the research of the science of consciousness. The scope of topics can include, but is not limited to neuroscience, psychology and medicine. Main activities include hosting scientific seminars and meetings to assess the current state of science and to stimulate and inform the future research needs.
