クオリア構造と情報構造の関係性理解 科研費 学術変革領域研究(B)

MISSION


Qualia (quality of consciousness) have not been captured by conventional scientific frameworks. 

Our group proposes a new research paradigm to characterize qualia in terms of the relationship between different qualia.




A search for an isomorphism between conscious experience and structure of information Talk about the core idea, "an isomorphism between conscious experience and structure of information" by Tsuchiya




The qualia-structure project (introduction):

A search for an isomorphism between conscious experience and structure of information

 This is an overview / introduction talk given at the Shimojo lab, Caltech (zoom meeting), May 28, 2021.

TEAM

A01 Qualia Structure

PINao Tsuchiya

Target: Large-scale psychophysical experiments and mathematical phenomenology models to elucidate qualia structure

B01 Measurement and Manipulation

PIMakiko Yamada

Target: Brain activity measurement related to qualia structure, and pharmacological load manipulation to elucidate the causal relationship

C01 Information Structure

PIMasafumi Oizumi

Target: Extraction of information structure, corresponding to qualia structure, from brain activity
