Consciousness by J. Allan Hobson( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Consciousness, Hobson explores the brain structures and functions now understood to be fundamental to conscious experience, demonstrating how his youthful conception of a single, unified brain-mind system has been borne out by his own investigations and by breakthroughs made possible by powerful neuroscientific techniques (brain scanning and imaging: and behavioral measures of memory, attention, and visualization in the laboratory)." "But it is the inclusion of subjectivity that makes Hobson's approach unique - and so compelling. Ranging beyond the objective world of the laboratory, he approaches such daunting issues as the mind-body question, free will, psychic energy, and mind-as-causal with an infectious exuberance anchored to a series of, in his words, "radically innocent common-sense claims." In addition to recounting seminal research in psychology, he draws extensively on his own life experiences, as well as on the work of philosophers and artists seeking to define and represent consciousness in their own terms. The result is a highly personal tour of the brain and mind conducted by one of its foremost guides - a book that although firmly rooted in scientific rigor, never loses sight of the mysterious and seductive side of its subject."--Jacket

States of mind : new discoveries about how our brains make us who we are by Roberta Conlan( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

States of Mind is a wonderfully accessible introduction to the most important recent findings about how our health, behavior, feelings, and identities are influenced by the workings of our brains. Eight pioneering researchers present remarkable new insights about how our inner lives - both of the mind and of the body - are generated and regulated by the marvelous biology going on inside our heads. These preeminent scientists offer a new way of understanding ourselves - of peering into the workings of our brains in order to appreciate how our emotions and moods, our memories and dreams come about. They also reveal a new understanding of health and illness and how important the interconnections between our minds and bodies are
13 dreams Freud never had : the new mind science by J. Allan Hobson( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Freud believed dreams resulted from an elaborate effort of the mind to conceal unacceptable instinctual wishes welling up from the unconscious when the ego relaxes its prohibition of the id in sleep. But modern neuroscience, including Hobson's own research, has shown this understanding of the brain to be wrong. As Hobson explains, the bizarre nature of our dreams has nothing to do with repressed emotion as Freud taught; it results from the way the brain is physically built. Chemical mechanisms in the brain stem during deep REM sleep, which shift the activation of various regions of the cortex, generate these changes. Here is a clear window on how thoughts are actually created from our memories of experiences."--Jacket

Psychodynamic neurology : dreams, consciousness, and virtual reality by J. Allan Hobson( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our brains plan conscious experience in our sleep using our waking experience only to correct a built-in, virtual reality model of the world that becomes more fully active when we sleep. We become subjectively aware of that virtual reality model when we dream. Our dreams are a mixture of anticipated virtual and remembered real experience. This book tells the story of now neuroscience has helped us reach this startling and exciting conclusion and how the new scientific model builds upon and also departs from the dream theories of the past. It recounts how modern sleep and dream science developed from its inception in 1953 with the discovery of REM sleep and its association with dreaming. It explains how initial enthusiasm for Freud's dream theory waned and ultimately gave way to the alternative ideas described in detail throughout this book"--Provided by publisher
Sleep by Ted Spagna( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a monograph of Ted Spagna, who bridged the gap between art and science with his pioneering visual studies of human sleep behaviour. In 1975, Ted Spagna began his voyeuristic investigation of the hidden landscape of sleep and dreams by photographing people with a time-lapse camera as they slept. Spanga's work is important for both its aesthetic and scientific implications. His images provided researchers with never before seen visual information about sleeping subjects, thus confirming and amplifying scientific studies about sleep behaviour

Ego damage and repair : toward a psychodynamic neurology by J. Allan Hobson( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a psychiatric trainee at Harvard in the early 1960s, Dr Allan Hobson was taught commitment to psychoanalytic theory that was already suspect and is now almost entirely obsolete. Via a series of clinical case reports, the author first apologizes for the arrogant ignorance that he adopted from his teachers and then replaces Freudian doctrine with a scientific alternative called Psychodynamic Neurology. The new approach is solidly grounded in sleep and dream science and restores hypnosis to its rightful place in the therapeutic armamentarium. A central precept of Ego Damage and Repair is that the self and its subjective experience (including symptoms) are natural accompaniments of spontaneous and prenatal brain activation that persists throughout life as REM sleep dreaming. Far from being the nonsense theory that psychoanalytic opponents mock, Psychodynamic Neurology views the unconscious as a hyper-meaningful set of predictions about the world that constitutes a virtual reality model which is continuously updated by personal experience. To showcase the changes in psychotherapeutic practice that are recommended, the self treatment of Dr Glen Just is described in detail. The book is designed to appeal to all who are dedicated to improving the quality of human life, including their own
