Speaker Bio

Daqing (Daching) Piao received BS in Physics in 1990 from Tsinghua University, MS in Biomedical Engineering in 2001 from the University of Connecticut, and PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2003 from the University of Connecticut.  He joined the faculty at Oklahoma State University in 2005 and is now a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research centers on applying light-tissue interaction principles for identifying and modulating tissue properties. A significant part of his research involves modeling the interaction between light and complex medium. He has strong interest in understanding the neurophysiological examinability of phenomena associated with consciousness of non-normal states.

Abstract: On the susceptibility of matter to mind

This talk hypothesizes to model mind-matter interaction by introducing a susceptibility property of a “matter” that responds to the degree-of-coherence of neuronal activities associated with a “mind”. The theory aims to propose what kind of neurophysiological markers could exist for correlating with the onset of anomalous information requisition.
