Brain Connection Heatmap

How to determine whether someone is conscious if they are not able to communicate or move? This project engages the theories of consciousness, consciousness disorder and how to visualise brain states taking inspiration from the unicellular organism that is slime mould. The data is taken from a patient's brain at a resting state and a simulated unconsciousness state under anesthesia.The structures are a generative interpretation of functional connectivity data over time to create a three dimensional heatmap.
