Título: Information processing in altered states of consciousness

Resumo:
Consciousness is a vaguely defined term and still many cognitive neuroscientists try to tackle the mysteries behind it using various neuroimaging techniques. In my talk I will give an overview of our research at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience Salzburg (CCNS) and specifically present a range of studies of our laboratory for ?Sleep and Consciousness? which address cognitive processing in the absence or alterations of consciousness. I will cover spontaneous brain activity and how it shapes conscious experiencing and will then shortly discuss the influence of circadian rhythmicity and the variations of consciousness over a 24hr day. Last but not least I will provide empirical evidence from sleep, Disorder of Consciouness (DOC) and perinatal baby studies where we measure brain activity in ?altered states of Consciousness? using M/EEG and fMRI.
