RESEARCH SUMMARY 

What is consciousness and how can a brain construct it? Recently the focus of my lab turned to the brain basis of consciousness, examining the topic from the perspective of social cognition. Objectively, we know that humans attribute awareness to themselves and to each other. What is the brain mechanism responsible for constructing this attribution of awareness—for computing that person Y is aware of thing X? What types of computations are required? What happens when those brain networks are disrupted? What are the social, predictive, or behavioral uses, if any, of the construct of awareness?
