About this book

Introduction

This book discusses consciousness from the perspectives of neuroscience, neuropsychiatry and philosophy.
The author argues that the central issue in brain studies is to explain the unity, continuity, and adherence of experience, whether it is sensory or mental awareness, phenomenal- or self-consciousness. The fascinating discussion that this book presents is: How do the brain and the self create the conspiracy of experience where the physicality of the brain is lost in the subjectivity of the self?

Keywords

Memory and the self biological and philosophical accounts of consciousness boundaries of the self brain and self self-relflections and neurons the brain and subjective meanings
