Conciousness: Marcus du Sautoy, DJ James Holden

Join Marcus du Sautoy, BBC presenter and Professor of Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford – as he takes you on a journey into consciousness, in a performance-lecture that combines music, specially conceived visuals, lighting design and interactive experiences.

The evening is divided into five chapters that cover different areas of consciousness from animals to artificial intelligence.

Du Sautoy and guests including Professor Vincent Walsh, Professor Vasudevi Reddy and Dr Mark Lythgoe explain how we can see inside the workings of the brain and ask questions such as 'What happens as our brain performs different tasks?', 'When do we become conscious?', 'How much of my brain can I remove before I would lose my sense of I?', 'Is my cat conscious?', and 'Can a machine ever be conscious or be deemed intelligent?'.

James Holden performs his soundtrack for the evening which explores sound and consciousness.

This event is part of Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain. The Barbican and the Wellcome Trust collaborate in this season to light up the mind. See www.barbican.org.uk/wonder for further information.
