A seminar by Kathryn Hess Bellwald of EPFL
A workshop by Giulio Tononi, neuroscientist and psychiatrist of the Univeristy of Wisconsin, to introduce the basic notions, applications and future developments of Integrated information theory (IIT), a principled approach to understanding what consciousness is and what it takes to have it.
What is consciousness, and what is its neural substrate in the brain? Why does consciousness fade with dreamless sleep even though the brain remains active? Giulio Tononi, neuroscientist and psychiatrist of the University of Wisconsin, will introduce the Integrated information theory (IIT) as an attempt to answer these and other questions in a principled manner.
