Research

CNRU (Cognitive Neuroscience Research Unit) works broadly within cognitive neuroscience, but research projects so far seem to be particularly focussed on some specalized areas.  These are at at the moment:

  • The development of methods to study consciousness empirically.
  • Empirical and theoretical investigations of neural correlates of consciousness.
  • “Dysfunctions” of consciousness (blindsight, visuospatial neglect, vegetative state, minimally conscious state).
  • Cognitive rehabilitation and cognitive training.
  • Intentional actions, volition and free will.
