Appearing in: Me, My World and I and Your True Self

“Humanity is not condemned to wander forever in an epistemological fog, knowing only the surface appearance of things but never their true nature” –

Christof Koch is a trailblazing neuroscientist best known for his work on the neural bases of consciousness. His research looks to understand how consciousness arises out of the complexity of the system inside each of our heads.

He is the President and Chief Scientific Officer of the Allen Institute of Brain Science in Seattle. From 1986 until 2013, he was the Lois and Victor Troendle Professor of Cognitive and Behavioral Biology at The California Institute of Technology. Christof is also a frequent public speaker and a columnist for Scientific American, writing on consciousness, the mind and free will.

“Koch tracks the 'neural footprints' of experience; swims off the wilder shores of integrated information theory; and speculates about the 'feeling of life itself' in ravens, bees and octopuses” – New Scientist
