Consciousness is one the most mysterious phenomenon in nature. After a long period of denial, scientists are now actively trying to understand how the brain gives rise to our conscious experience. More specifically, how modern brain imaging techniques allows us to uncover the interplay between the conscious and unconscious mind, not only in human adults but also in infants and animals. This lecture describes how scientists are tackling this difficult issue and how much progress has been made so far.
