On the topic of:

“A search of an isomorphism between conscious experience and structure of information: an interdisciplinary program”

 

Traditional neuroscientific approaches on consciousness are typically either 1) searching for the neural correlates of consciousness, 2) proposing a model of some aspects of consciousness, or 3) developing mathematical theories of consciousness. In this talk, I propose another approach: a search of an isomorphism. This research program consists of: a) to characterize the structure of conscious phenomenology, 2) to characterize the structure of information and 3) to characterize the relationship between the two types of structures. I will present some of our preliminary work along this line of research.
