Consciousness : How Matter Becomes Imagination, Paperback

Consciousness : How Matter Becomes Imagination Paperback


What goes on in our heads when we have a thought? With this book, Edelman and Tononi present an empirically-supported full-scale theory of consciousness.

They apply all of the resources and insights of modern neuroscience, from the largest computer models ever constructed to new experiments that detect the changes in brain activity.

This pioneering work represents a landmark in our growing understanding of consciousness.

Praise for Gerald Edelman: 'The new Darwin...His theory is an enrichment of life itself' - Oliver Sacks, "The Times".
