The Psychology Section organised the following event for the 2017 British Science Festival:

What is consciousness?
Psychologists have long tried to understand consciousness. To this day, distinguishing how conscious you are, what you are conscious of and the specific experience of being you, is difficult. Anil Seth explored the new research that is allowing a deeper understanding of these central aspects of our humanity.
