Will consciousness ever be explained?

Journalist Alok Jha brings together a panel of experts to discuss the latest philosophical and scientific thinking and ask, can we ever fully explore and understand the system from within? 

Dr Anil Seth (Univeristy of Sussex), Philosopher Barry Smith (University of London) and neuropsycologist Chris Frith (UCL) join Alok at the Guardian offices in London to kickstart the debate ahead of their Ri event on Wednesday 7 March

The event will form part of a series curated by Alok Jha for the Ri.

On Tuesday 13 March Alok explores the gulf between what journalists do and what some scientists think they should do with Dr Chris Chambers, Dr Ananyo Bhattacharya and Dr Alice Bell.

Plus, on Wednesday 28 March the Science Weekly team record a podcast live at the Ri with the help demonstrations, audience participation and the usual host of special guests.
