'Losing your world while falling asleep'
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Dervila Glynn.
Tristan’s background: Tristan is a Wellcome Trust Biomedical Research Fellow at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. He has wide Interests in Cognition and neurophysiology. In the last few years he has been mainly concentrating in describing different states of consciousness such as awake, sleep, sedation, vegetative state. His new line of work is primarily looking at how we lose consciousness and how we get it back.
He is mainly attacking the limits of cognition in the process of falling asleep or getting sedated (losing consciousness) with a combination of behavioural measures, brain markers of cognitive processes and brain markers of the micro-conscious state. Together with his students and collaborators they use behaviour measures, electromyography, electroencephalography, functional MRI , intracranial electrodes and transcranial magnetic stimulation, to respond the main questions at the intersection between awareness and wakefulness.
