    Anil Seth Speaker Biography

    Keynote speaker Anil Seth is one of the world’s most incisive and popular neuroscientists. An engaging science speaker, Anil Seth is also a celebrated author. His 2014 book 30-Second Brain introduced neuroscience to a generation of readers.

    Anil Seth is a popular speaker, author, and media personality, and a trailblazing researcher of neuroscience. He is Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex and a Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellow. Seth is also Co-Director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex.

    In his academic writings and as Editor in Chief of Neuroscience of Consciousness, Seth explores the biological basis of consciousness. He chaired the 16th meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness and is an ASSC member-at-large. He complements his prolific academic writings with books, articles, and also public appearances that share his insights with general audiences.

    Seth’s 2017 TED talk, “Your Brain Hallucinates Your Conscious Reality,” has been viewed more than 11 million times. He has been invited to speak at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, at public high schools, and at conferences around the world.

    Anil Seth Keynote Topics

    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.

    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.

    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.
