What Does Consciousness Do For Us?

June 11, 2016

Free

Can unconscious stimuli control behaviour? In what way? Take part in research by the Institute of Philosophy exploring the difference consciousness makes to the calculations going on in our heads.

In pioneering work across disciplines, scientists and philosophers are collaborating on an AHRC Science in Culture research project on ‘Meaning for the Brain and Meaning for the Person’. They will be on hand to tell you how they are researching consciousness and why it is important to discover what consciousness does for us. You provide the data, they’ll explain its significance.
