Postdoc, Freie Universität Berlin
My name is Timo Torsten Schmidt and I am a neuroscientist interested in the neuronal underpinnings of human consciousness. I work with methods from the field of computational cognitive neuroscience with a focus on functional neuroimaging. In my research I focus on (1) the mental representation of consciousness content (working memory) and (2) mechanisms underlying altered states of consciousness. I am currently living and working in @Neurocomputation and Neuroimaging Unit (NNU), Freie Universität Berlin. I am an advocate of Open Science and would like to foster that scientific findings are made publicly available. In this line, I have developed the Altered States Database (ASDB) - www.asdb.info - This website makes scientific data on the subjective effects of different mind altering techniques publicly available, e.g. the experiences people have after consuming different drugs, or during such techniques as meditation or sensory deprivation.
