TEN WEBINARS ON BRAIN OSCILLATORY ACTIVITIES UNDERPINNING SLEEP-WAKE CYCLE AND HIGHER FUNCTIONS AND DYSFUNCTIONS
Webinar: Prof. Marcello Massimini (UNIMI)
"Nothing greater: a voyage in the neural basis of human consciousness"
Venue: February 26th, 2021 from 03:00 to 04:00 pm CET
Duration: 40 minutes + 20 minutes of discussion
Invited speaker: Prof. Marcello Massimini (Department of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences, University of Milan, Italy). https://www.unimi.it/it/ugov/person/marcello-massimini
Prof. Massimini is one of the most brilliant Researchers using non-invasive brain stimulations and electroencephalographic techniques in the field of Cognitive Neurosciences and authored fundamental studies about the neurophysiological basis of human consciousness and its disorders. He published the book entitled "Nulla di più grande” together with Giulio Tononi (Publisher: Baldini & Castoldi, 2017), https://www.baldinicastoldi.it/libri/nulla-di-piu-grande/.
Title of the Webinar: "Nothing greater: a voyage in the neural basis of human consciousness"
An emerging property of the brain function is its oscillatory activity at multiple frequencies in relation to the level of vigilance, consciousness, and cognitive and sensorimotor information processes. Non-invasive brain stimulations by transcranial magnetic simulations and high-resolution electroencephalographic techniques can unveil neurophysiological mechanisms of consciousness in healthy persons and patients with brain disorders. Prof. Marcello Massimini will enlighten on this fascinating and exciting angle of the Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences with the promise that our actual view of neurophysiological mechanisms generating human consciousness may be significantly enriched.
