EJN call for papers: New trends in the empirical study of consciousness: measures and mechanisms

Organiser: European Journal of Neuroscience (EJN)


Registration Deadline: 12 Oct 2022

How do we assess the presence of consciousness in others? Since consciousness can be preserved even when disconnected from the environment, such as during dreaming, or in patients with disorders of consciousness, developing reliable objective markers of consciousness represents a challenge of utmost importance with remarkable scientific, clinical and ethical implications. For this special issue, EJN aims to gather contributions that will showcase the development of reliable measures of consciousness and advance our understanding of its neurophysiological determinants.
