Advances in the study of cognition have profoundly changed our understanding of how the mind works, carving a sophisticated new pathway into studies of philosophy, technology, and aesthetics. We invite you to join us as we consider how these advances, explored through performance, can impact issues of health and global citizenship. The study of consciousness is a rigorously interdisciplinary pursuit, embracing academic disciplines as diverse as cognitive linguistics, sensorimotor theories of perception, and artificial intelligence.
