New Funded Project: 'Expecting Ourselves'

Expecting Ourselves: Embodied Prediction and the Construction of Conscious Experience

We’re excited to announce a new Eidyn project on embodied prediction and the construction of conscious experience. This new ERC funded (c. €1.4M) project will be spearheaded by Andy Clark over the next 4 years. “The goal is to deliver new insights into the nature, scope, mechanisms and (importantly) the very possibility of conscious experience.”

Visiting: Prof. Sandra Mitchell

From the University of Pittsburg, Prof. Sandra Mitchell will be visiting the Eidyn research centre for three weeks, beginning the 23rd of May.
