Marc Wittmann, PhD


A short introduction

Marc Wittmann is a research fellow at the Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health in Freiburg, Germany. He received his doctorate (1997) and habilitation (2007) at the Institute for Medical Psychology of the Medical Faculty of the University of Munich. Dr. Wittmann's research focuses on time perception as indicator of cognitive functioning and emotion. His studies on different temporal-processing mechanisms employ psychophysical experiments, time perception inventories and functional MRI. In particular, he investigates the effects of different durations, age, psychopharmacological treatment, chronic drug abuse and brain injury on the experience of time.


Going beyond Einstein: Linking time and consciousness

Here is day 2 of Essentia’s Time and Mind conference, our scientific discussion of the profound mystery of the passage of time and how it relates to consciousness. Many physicists maintain that the passage of time is purely a feature of mind, beyond physics itself, while others argue that it points to some new physical paradigm, perhaps associated with the marriage of relativity theory and quantum theory. Certainly, the status of time in any final theory of physics remains unclear. What is clear, however, is that a theory that encompasses time and mind will have to go beyond Einstein’s Block Universe.
