Drs. Andrew and Alexander Fingelkurts / BM-Science are invited to hold two workshop sessions: “Phenomenal consciousness as a field level in brain functional architecture” and “Implications of operational architectonics methodology for consciousness studies and neurophilosophy”.

The sessions highlight that subjective consciousness is a real and a natural phenomenon that is tightly anchored to a biological reality found in the human brain. According to this view, then there must be a specific level of brain organization and a specific spatial–temporal grain in it where consciousness resides. This level is the brain Operational Architectonics (OA) which is presented as a highly structured and dynamic extracellular electric field nested in spatial and temporal domains and over a range of frequencies, thus forming a particular operational space–time (OST). Examples of application of OA methodology to different experimental models of consciousness were presented.
