Abstract or Description

(From the publisher) In The Science of Consciousness leading researchers examine how consciousness is being investigated in the key areas of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and clinical practice. Within cognitive psychology special focus is given to the function of consciousness, and to the relation of conscious processing to nonconscious processing in perception, learning, memory and information dissemination in the human brain. The investigation of consciousness in neuropsychology includes examination of the neural conditions for consciousness and the effects of brain damage. Finally mind/body interactions in clinical and experimental settings are considered, including the somatic effects of imagery, biofeedback and placebo effects. Individual chapters, presenting the latest research findings from pioneers in the field, combine to form a stimulating and accessible overview of this emerging science. The Science of Consciousness will be invaluable for students, researchers and clinicians interested in the developments and direction of this rapidly growing field.
