Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science

Zombielab at the Science Museum

The Sackler Centre was out in force to take part in ZombieLab at the Science Museum in February 2013. Its aim was to draw the public in to discuss the science of consciousness to the backdrop of a zombie outbreak. Sackler members Anil Seth, Daniel Bor and Sarah Garfinkel discussed research in the field of consciousness science to answer if zombies are conscious.

Keisuke Suzuki exhibited an Out of Body demo using his virtual reality setup, and other members of the Sackler Centre were on hand to answer key questions about the nature of consciousness all weekend.
