Insight Conference

Dr. Timo Torsten Schmidt

Freie Universität Berlin

Timo Torsten Schmidt is a postdoctoral researcher at the Freie Universität Berlin. As a neuroscientist interested in the neuronal underpinnings of human consciousness, he works with methods from the field of computational cognitive neuroscience with a focus on functional neuroimaging. His research focuses on the mental representation of consciousness content (working memory and mental imagery) and mechanisms underlying altered states of consciousness (ASC). The latter entails a meta-analytical approach aimed at identifying common ‘phenomenological patterns’ across diversely induced ASCs. For this purpose, he initiated the Altered States Database accessible on www.asdb.info. It constitutes a full open-access resource to enable meta-analyses on questionnaire data about ASC experiences.
