Overview

Journey to the Centers of the Mind: Toward a Science of Consciousness / Edition 1

How do our personalities & mental processes, our states of consciousness, derive from a gray mass of tissue with the consistency of a soft-boiled egg? How can mere molecules constitute an idea or emotion? Neuroscientist Greenfield offers an intriguing, unifying theory of consciousness that encompasses both mental events & physical aspects of brain function. Using info. from clues in animal behavior, human brain damage, computer science, neurobiology, & philosophy, she offers a concentric theory of consciousness, & shows how certain events in the brain correspond to our qualitative experience of the world.
