Mathematical consciousness science (MCS) is a new, vibrant and accelerating scientific field. Spawned from initial ideas such as Integrated Information Theory and Global Workspace Theory, today MCS heralds an exciting new future in humankind’s quest to understand the self and uncover the relationship between the brain and the subjective inner conscious life of sentient organisms.
This talk and roundtable event provides an exciting introduction to a selection of MCS research topics at Oxford and is an opportunity to (virtually) meet the mathematicians involved.
