Anatomical structure and physiological functions subserving higher order consciousness
This chapter examines some theories of higher order processes that influence cognition and reasoning and their implications for the study of brain functions and primal emotions. It describes how the operations of topographically different regions of the brain are bound into a functional entity subserving higher order consciousness. It explains the relevant thoughts of several scientists on the issue including Vernon Mountcastle, Jean-Pierre Changeux, and Bernard Baars.
