Luca Turin - Why Does Consciousness Dissolve in Chloroform?

Luca Turin: Why Does Consciousness Dissolve in Chloroform? from EMPAC @ Rensselaer on Vimeo.

"Biophysicist Luca Turin explores the mysterious connection between time and human consciousness with this presentation of the many unusual discoveries from his research with general anesthesia and its effects on an internal sense of duration. With a rich combination of wit and scientific rigor, Turin explores one of the most enduring questions of human philosophy sprung from an investigation into one of our most common medical practices."
