prof. PhDr. Silvia Gáliková, CSc.:
Human mind in experimental research


In contemporary science and theory the nature of human mind has been considered as one of the most difficult and complex problems. In my talk I intend to point out selected experiments and research strategies which contribute significantly to a better understanding of the working mechanisms of states of mind (self-embodiment, self-deception etc.). From the number of recent theoretical approaches I will be concerned with the „phenomenal self-modeI“ (T. Metzinger) and novel methods of cognitive enhancement (J. Illes).
