Understanding Consciousness

Science Group

The Coma Science Group, an international, multidisciplinary team, aims to improve our understanding of post-comatose patients with disorders of consciousness. This includes disorders of consciousness (i.e., coma, “vegetative” state/unresponsive wakefulness syndrome and minimally conscious state) and conscious patients with locked-in syndrome. We are specialized in the diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic interventions for these patients.

Besides, we study other non-ordinary states of consciousness, such as near-death experience, cognitive trance, hypnosis and psychedelic experiences. Additionally, we work on improving the diagnosis and clinical management of patients who have had a concussion.
