Consciousness and the Self
Lecture no. 32 from the course: Understanding the Brain
Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Why does consciousness appear to be something that is happening to a "me"? What is the "me"? We explore these and other questions surrounding the nature of consciousness. We also delve more deeply into some of the cases discussed in Lecture 16 on agnosias, re-examining what is actually lost in cortical blindness, prosopagnosia, and contralateral neglect.
