Training: Neuroethical reflection on consciousness and cognition

This course offers an overview of the state of the art neuroethical reflection about consciousness and cognition, with a particular focus on two dimensions...

- Foundational issues related to the definition of consciousness, including its possible operationalization in the clinical context and its implication for potential technological simulation/emulation.

- 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).
