Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine if patients undergoing cardiac surgery have memories and thought processes during the surgery while unconscious. Participants' brain electrical activity will be monitored during surgery using an EEG. A portable tablet will show random images to participants and participants will wear headphones that will generate audio cues during surgery. After recovery from surgery, participants will undergo a 45 minute interview to assess any memories or experiences during surgery.
