Consciousness & Psychopharmacology

Research Goal

Our research goal is to advance the understanding of brain processes underlying consciousness and the subjective human experience.  To that aim we probe brain activity by using an array of advanced functional neuroimaging techniques during resting state and in response to different stimuli, as well as following modulation of brain activity by applying behavioral and pharmacological interventions as well as brain-computer interfaces.
