Steven Laureys is Research Director at the National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS).

founded the Coma Science Group (2006) & directs the GIGA Consciousness Research Unit (2014-)

Currently, he is invited professor at CERVO Brain Centre, Laval University & CIUSSS, Canada (2021-).

I'm interested in understanding human consciousness

& translating that neuroscientific knowledge to better clinical care. 

Together with our team, colleagues & industrial partners,

we explore the human mind in health and disease using the latest

brain imaging technologies (structural & functional MRI, PET, EEG),

stimulation techniques  (tDCS, vagal nerve stimulation, TMS) and wearables assessing

brain injury, coma and related states, concussion, sleep & meditation.

How can we know if some patients in coma have any consciousness and how can we improve their recovery?

Will we ever be able to read minds? What are near-death experiences? What is brain death?

What happens in our brains during dreaming, hypnosis or meditation?

How can we exploit the power of the mind ?

Understanding consciousness remains one of the greatest mysteries for science to solve.

For the past 25 years, I have dedicated my life to study and care for the human mind, normal and damaged.
