The neuroscience of consciousness
Anil provides an insight into the state-of-the-art research in the new science of consciousness. Distinguishing between conscious level, conscious content and conscious self, he describes how new experiments are shedding light on the underlying neural mechanisms in normal life as well as in neurological and psychiatric conditions.
Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality
Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.
Being a beast machine
What explains the experience of being a conscious self – of being you? Drawing on cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience and old ideas from psychology and control theory, Anil Seth describes how our conscious selves emerge from a fundamental biological drive to stay alive in an unpredictable world.
