about

Consciousness is a state of being aware - of our self, of our surroundings, of our place in those surroundings. Yet what makes us conscious? What neural processes drive our awareness, and how do these processes relate to what we think of as our mind?Consciousness: Philosophical, Psychological, and Neural Theories seeks to respond to some of these questions, offering a wealth of information from which the reader can develop their own views of the subject. Taking a critical, thought-provoking approach, the book integrates studies from philosophy,psychology, and neuroscience to capture the major themes on which our current understanding of consciousness is based.Opening with a series of chapters that introduce us to thinking about mind, the book goes on to explore function and brain, examining such topics as functionalism, representation, and brain dynamics.Understanding consciousness remains one of today's greatest challenges. Consciousness: Philosophical, Psychological, and Neural Theories demystifies what is known about the interface of brain and mind, and offers intriguing insights into what remains to be discovered.Online Resource CentreThe Online Resource Centre features figures from the book available to download to facilitate lecture preparation.
