Pfeffer Center Lecture: Mark Solms presents on the “hard problem” of consciousness
Why and How Consciousness Arises
Dr. Solms will discuss recent developments in neuropsychoanalysis that illuminate the “hard problem” of consciousness – how and why the subjective experience of consciousness arises in conjunction with the functions of the brain. Solms’ model integrates insights from affective neuroscience, the “conscious id” hypothesis, and Friston’s model of predictive coding, free energy and “surprise,” with implications for clinical work.
