Project Overview

The Azrieli Program in Brain, Mind & Consciousness examines what consciousness is, and how it comes about. Fellows use advances in brain imaging, computational neuroscience and other fields to answer these questions. Research themes include the nature of consciousness, its function, biological basis, origins, and the disorders that arise in consciousness.
