A Universe of Consciousness: How Matter Becomes Imagination
A Nobel Prize-winning scientist and a leading brain researcher show how the brain creates conscious experience. In A Universe of Consciousness, Gerald Edelman builds on the radical ideas he introduced in his monumental trilogy - Neural Darwinism, Topobiology, and The Remembered Present - to present for the first time an empirically supported full-scale theory of consciousness. He and the neurobiolgist Giulio Tononi show how they use ingenious technology to detect the most minute brain currents and to identify the specific brain waves that correlate with particular conscious experiences. The results of this pioneering work challenge the conventional wisdom about consciousness.
