Neurologist Steven Laureys heads the multidisciplinary team of the Coma Science Group in Liège, trying to unravel some of the mysteries that surround human consciousness.

Laureys explores these questions by studying people with an exceptional brain: be it those who are locked in their own body, people who’ve had a near-death experience, champion free divers or Tibetan monks.
