Complex Systems Summer School 2015


Chen Song is a PhD neuroscience student in University College London (London, UK), currently working on how inter-individual differences in the brain’s wiring pattern and morphology give rise to inter-individual variability in conscious experience, using a combination of experimental and theoretical approach. Prior to her PhD study, Chen received a BSc in biomedical engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Shanghai, China). During her BSc, Chen did three years of undergraduate research on visual perception at the Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai, China) and a summer research internship at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (Leipzig, Germany). From the beginning of her research career, Chen has been extremely interested in complexity systems. Her long-term research goal is to understand how consciousness may emerge from the complexity of brain systems. website
