Lab Overview

Consciousness is one of the last frontiers of modern mind research. One of its ultimate goals is to understand the hard problem of how the neural mechanisms of the brain give rise to a unified and cohesive, albeit subjective, reality across individuals. Sir Francis Crick once wrote: "Solving the problem of consciousness will need the labors of many scientists, or many kinds, though it is always possible that there will be a few crucial insights and observations." Partaking on the same scientific expedition, the goal of our lab is to investigate the neural mechanisms involved in the subjective experiences of action- and decision-related components such as intent and free will, and temporality. Insights into how these neural underpinnings translate into mental experiences will pave ways to better our understanding of the mind and its many mysteries.
