The neurology of consciousness : cognitive neuroscience and neuropathology by Steven Laureys( )

36 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding consciousness is the major unsolved problem in biology. One increasingly important method of studying consciousness is to study disorders of consciousness, e.g. brain damage and disease states leading to vegetative states, coma, minimally conscious states, etc. Many of these studies are very much in the public eye because of their relationship to controversies about coma patients (e.g. Terry Schiavo case in the US recently), and the relationship to one of the major philosophical, sociological, political, and religious questions of humankind. This is the first book to summarize our current understanding of the neuroanatomical and functional underpinnings of human consciousness by emphasizing a lesional approach offered via the study of neurological patients. The selected contributors are all outstanding authors and undisputed leaders in their field
A universe of consciousness : how matter becomes imagination by Gerald M Edelman( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Polish and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A Universe of Consciousness, Edelman and Tononi present an empirically supported full-scale theory of consciousness. The theory provides a scientific understanding of the most general and fundamental properties of consciousness - the private and unitary nature of experience and yet the infinite variety of conscious states, stretching as widely as one's memory and as far as one's imagination." "Edelman and Tononi apply all of the resources and insights of modern neuroscience, from the largest computer models of the brain ever constructed to new experiments that detect the changes in brain activity that actually occur when we are conscious or unconscious of a stimulus. Their arguments build on the radical ideas introduced by Edelman in works that apply Darwinian principles to the development of brain and mind."--Jacket
Phi : a voyage from the brain to the soul by Giulio Tononi( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From a neurologist whose work offers one of the most promising paths to unraveling the mystery of consciousness, an exploration of consciousness unlike any other. Somehow our soul, our consciousness, our world, all is generated by what's inside our skull. This is the essential question of neurology. Consciousness cannot just rest inside the shroud of science, because consciousness is more than an object of science: it is its subject, too. In PHI, we follow an old scientist, Galileo, on a journey in search of consciousness. Galileo once wrote "concerning sensation and the things that pertain to it, I claim to understand but little"--So he chose to remove the observer from nature, and now his investigation requires its return. Galileo's journey has three parts, each with a different guide: in the first, accompanied by a scientist who resembles Francis Crick, he learns why certain parts of the brain are important and not others and why consciousness fades with sleep. In the second part, when his companion seems to be Alturi (Galileo is hard of hearing, so doesn't properly hear his companion's name--Turing), he sees how the facts we have might be unified into a theory of consciousness. In the third part, accompanied by another master of scientific observation, he muses on how consciousness is an evolving, developing, ever deepening awareness of ourselves in history, culture"--
Selectionism and the brain( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume evaluates and explores evolutionary selection criteria for neurons, neuronal systems and the brain. It also covers important theoretical issues using empirical data from new neurophysical studies
Consciousness : how matter becomes imagination by Gerald M Edelman( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edelman and Tononi present an empirically-supported full-scale theory of consciousness. Applying the resources and insights of modern neuroscience, using the largest computer model ever constructed, they show what creates conscious experiences
Sizing up consciousness : towards an objective measure of the capacity for experience by Marcello Massimini( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how we can measure consciousness. It clarifies what consciousness is, how it can be generated from a physical system, and how it can be measured. It also shows how conscious states can be expressed mathematically and how precise predictions can be made using data from neurophysiological studies
Gehirn und Geist : wie aus Materie Bewusstsein entsteht by Gerald M Edelman( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in German and English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment la matière devient conscience by Gerald M Edelman( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La conscience est devenue un problème scientifique qu'on peut aborder de façon expérimentale. Les auteurs dressent le bilan des données empiriques qui permettent de forger une théorie solide de la conscience. Ils montrent que les processus conscients ne sont pas localisés à un endroit du cerveau, mais dépendent du fonctionnement de nombreuses régions
Un universo di coscienza : come la materia diventa immaginazione by Gerald M Edelman( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in Italian and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nella nostra testa c'è un universo di coscienza che contiene tutto ciò che noi siamo, quello che proviamo e quello che sappiamo. I progressi compiuti dalle neuroscienze forniscono un quadro sempre piú dettagliato, attraverso il quale possiamo provare a rispondere su base sperimentale alle domande che scienziati e filosofi si pongono da piú di duemila anni. Edelman e Tononi presentano una teoria dettagliata della coscienza, solidamente fondata su basi empiriche, che tiene conto di tutte le proprietà fondamentali dell'esperienza cosciente, dalla sua natura privata e unitaria alla sua infinita varietà

Galileo e il fotodiodo : cervello, complessita e coscienza by Giulio Tononi( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in Italian and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Più di un filosofo ha dichiarato che il mistero di come il cervello possa generare la coscienza, la materia generare la mente, è e rimarrà insolubile. Molti scienziati hanno concluso che se le neuroscienze potranno un giorno offrire una spiegazione completa di come funziona il cervello, di come possiamo rispondere a segnali luminosi e acustici, non potranno mai spiegare come ne emerga la coscienza, l'esperienza soggettiva di un cielo stellato o del rombo di un tuono. Con Galileo a fare da guida in una serie di esperimenti reali e immaginari, questo libro presenta i risultati di un lungo viaggio alla rierca di una soluzione

Rapid Discovery of Continuous-Performance Compounds and Powernap Compounds Through Large-Scale Mutagenesis in Drosophila( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This Phase II proposal (G. Tononi-PI) resulted from the combination of two independent projects in Phase I: "Rapid discovery of continuous performance and power-nap compounds through large-scale mutagenesis in Drosophila" (G. Tononi-PI, C. Cirelli-CoPI) and "Avian models of sustained wakefulness" (R. Benca-PI, N. Rattenborg-CoPI). The goal of both projects was to find ways to postpone temporarily the need for sleep, and do so in a way that is completely safe. In Phase I, the strategy had been to study animal models of sleeplessness, including models created through mutagenesis (flies) or naturally-occurring models (birds), in order to identify druggable targets that can be exploited
