Neuroethical reflection on consciousness

This course offers an overview of the state-of-the-art neuroethical reflection about consciousness and cognition, with a particular focus on two dimensions: 1. Foundational issues related to the definition of consciousness, including its possible operationalization in the clinical context and its implication for potential technological simulation/emulation. 2. Practical issues related to the detection of residual consciousness in patients with Disorders of Consciousness (i.e., Vegetative State/Unaware Wakefulness Syndrome, Minimally Conscious State, Cognitive-Motor Dissociation).
