Editor-in-Chief
Anil Seth, University of Sussex

Anil K Seth is Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience and Founding Co-Director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex. Research in his group integrates consciousness science with computational and cognitive neuroscience, ultimately to connect the basic science of consciousness with new approaches to clinical diagnosis and intervention. He has published more than 100 academic papers in a variety of fields, he was Conference Chair of the 16th Meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC16, 2012), and he holds degrees in Natural Sciences (MA, Cambridge, 1994), Knowledge-Based Systems (M.Sc., Sussex, 1996) and Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (D.Phil., Sussex, 2000). Anil contributes regularly to the New Scientist, The Guardian, and other print and broadcast media; he is Editor and Co-Author of ’30 Second Brain’ (Ivy Press, 2014). He is committed to public involvement in science and gives regular open lectures on consciousness and other topics.

Deputy Editors
Jakob Hohwy, Monash University
Biyu Jade He, New York University

Biyu Jade He is an Investigator at the Neuroscience Institute, New York University Langone Medical Center in New York, U.S.  She studied biology at Tsinghua University, Beijing, and obtained her Ph.D. in neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis. She was an Early Independent Investigator at the National Institutes of Health before joining NYU. Her laboratory investigates three main research topics: 1) large-scale brain dynamics underlying conscious vs. unconscious processing; 2) interaction between spontaneous and evoked brain activity and nonlinear brain dynamics; 3) functional and generative mechanisms of scale-free brain activity

Jakob Hohwy is Professor of Philosophy at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. He studied in Aarhus, Denmark, obtained his masters from St. Andrews, Scotland, and did his PhD at the Australian National University. Jakob has established the Cognition & Philosophy Lab at Monash University, which conducts empirical experiments and theoretical explorations in consciousness science. His approach is highly interdisciplinary, and he collaborates with neuroscientists, psychologists, and psychiatrists on topics such as the neural correlates of consciousness, bistable perception, multisensory integration in autism, and bodily self-awareness. Jakob is the author of The Predictive Mind (OUP, 2013), which seeks to unify many aspects of consciousness under the notion of prediction error minimization.
