Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science

Clinical consciousness science

The Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science was founded in 2010 to unravel the biological basis of consciousness and generate new clinical applications. In the clinical theme of research, the theoretical and basic science within the Sackler Centre extends through cognitive and affective neuroscience to preclinical, clinical, and experimental medicine studies. In addition to the work on interoceptive awareness in states of anxiety, two further strands of clinical work focus on disordered consciousness in psychosis, and in Tourette Syndrome.
