    Where and When Does Consciousness Arise in the Brain

    Room: FdP-104

    There has been an ongoing search to find the psychological and neural correlates of consciousness. To do this when must ask both where consciousness arises in the flow of information and when it arises. Drawing on a large body of empirical evidence, this presentation argues that consciousness arises at a particular stage of information processing ("the intermediate level") and it arises when and...

    The functional neuroanatomy of intentional action


    The question of how we can intentionally control our behaviour has an enduring fascination for philosophers, psychologists and neurologists. Nevertheless, a deeper understanding of the cognitive mechanisms and functional-anatomical principles underlying intentional action is still lacking. Over the last few years we have started to investigate two fundamental aspects of intentional behaviour. The ...

    Teleology and Intentional Explanation

    Room: 422

    In this talk I compare and contrast three conceptions of reason-giving explanations of intentional actions: 'theory theory', simulation theory, and teleology. I make a case for teleology, and bring out some of the repercussions of this debate for work in developmental psychology on the acquisition of a 'theory of mind'.

    Bayesian perception is ecological perception

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    There is a certain excitement in vision science concerning the idea of applying the tools of Bayesian decision theory to explain our perceptual capacities. Bayesian models are thought to be needed to explain how the inverse problem of perception is solved, and to rescue a certain constructivist and Kantian way of understanding the perceptual process. Anticlimactically, I argue both that Bayesian o...

    Phenomenal Compositionality and Context Effects

    Room: Aula Enzo Paci

    If there is a “phenomenology of cognition” – a sui generis conceptual, or propositional, kind of phenomenology that constitutes the content of conscious occurrent thought – then one would expect that it is compositional. That is, one would expect that thought content is compositional – that the content of a complex concept or thought is a function of the contents of its constituent conc...
