In "The Quest for Consciousness," Caltech neuroscientist Christof Koch explores the biological basis of consciousness. He outlines a framework that he and Francis Crick (of DNA "double helix" fame) have constructed to come to grips with the ancient mind-body problem. At the heart of their framework is a sustained, empirical approach to discovering and characterizing the neuronal correlates of consciousness - the NCC - the subtle, flickering patterns of brain activity that underlie each and every conscious experience.
