1er Symposium de la recherche sur la conscience

1st Canadian Consciousness Research Symposium

In recent years, rapid technological developments in the field of neuroimaging have
provided new methods for revealing thoughts, actions and intentions based solely on the
pattern of activity that is observed in the brain. In specialized centres, these methods are
now being employed routinely to detect consciousness and even to communicate with
some behaviourally non-responsive patients who clinically appear to be comatose or in a
vegetative state.
