  1. 1. Panentheism, Panpsychism and Neuroscience : In Search of an Alternative Metaphysical Framework in Relation to Neuroscience, Consciousness, Free Will, and Theistic Beliefs

    Author : Oliver Li; Mikael Stenmark; Karin Johannesson; Aku Visala; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; physicalism; dualism; neuroscience; consciousness; free will; process philosophy; panpsychism; panexperientialism; panentheism; emergence theory; science and religion; theism; Philosophy of Religion; Religionsfilosofi;

    Abstract : This thesis philosophically examines, critically discusses, and proposes how a plausible philosophical framework of consciousness and free will should be formulated. This framework takes into account contemporary scientific research on human consciousness and free will and its possible challenges; also it is examined how this framework should be related to theistic beliefs – especially those connected to human and divine consciousness and free will.

  2. 2. Brain Structure and Function in Adolescents with Atypical Anorexia Nervosa

    Author : Gaia Olivo; Helgi B. Schiöth; Christian Benedict; Jessica Mwinyi; Andreas Jansen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; functional MRI; fMRI; magnetic resonance imaging; neuroimaging; brain imaging; anorexia nervosa; eating disorders; neuroscience; adolescents; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Atypical anorexia nervosa (AAN) has a high incidence in adolescents, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. The weight loss is generally less pronounced than that experienced in full-syndrome anorexia nervosa (AN), but the medical consequences can be as severe. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dream Experience - Phenomenology meets Cognitive Neuroscience

    Author : Lennart Karlsson; Filosofiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Philosophical logic; dream symbolism; neuroscience; delusional states; visual awareness; lucid dreaming; Phenomenology; dreaming; Teoretisk filosofi; logik;

    Abstract : This treatise examines what I call the ‘traditional view’ on the phenomenology of dreaming. According to this view, dreams are experienced in more or less the same way as waking reality – that is, our experience of “being-in-the-dream” is very much like our experience of “being-in-the-world”.

  4. 4. Brain, consciousness and disorders of consciousness at the intersection of neuroscience and philosophy

    Author : Michele Farisco; Kathinka Evers; Wolf Singer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Brain; consciousness; disorders of consciousness; neuroethics; neurophilosophy; Filosofi; Philosophy; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : The present dissertation starts from the general claim that neuroscience is not neutral, with regard to theoretical questions like the nature of consciousness, but it needs to be complemented with dedicated conceptual analysis. Specifically, the argument for this thesis is that the combination of empirical and conceptual work is a necessary step for assessing the significant questions raised by the most recent study of the brain.

  5. 5. Understanding inflammation requires neuroscience

    Author : Alessandro Gallina; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Inflammation and its resolution are processes subject to neural regulation (1). The best-characterized immune-regulating reflex is the “inflammatory reflex”, in which the efferent branch of the vagus nerve plays a central role in regulating cytokine-release in the periphery. READ MORE
