Details The field "scientific study of consciousness" emerged in the early 1990ies as a response to groundbreaking developments in analytic philosophy, neuroscience and cognitive psychology, its goal being the identification of formal mathematical laws or regularities that describe how experience arises in brain processes. Recently, the field has received increased attention from mathematicians. In this talk, I explain how the phenomenology of experience determines mathematical structure, define what constitutes a mathematical model of consciousness and show how general empirical predictions can be derived.
