Unlocking the Brain

Georg Northoff

Oxford University Press

After having discussed the role of the resting state and its prephenomenal structures, the volume now moves on to how they are manifested on the phenomenal level of consciousness. Qualia are considered the phenomenal hallmarks of consciousness that describe the subjective and qualitative features, the “what it is like” of experience and thus consciousness. The book here takes the loss of consciousness in the pathological disorder of the vegetative state (VS) as a paradigm to investigate the neuronal mechanisms underlying qualia in particular and consciousness in general.

Keywords:   vegetative state, qualia, consciousness, resting state, difference-based coding, biophysical spectrum hypothesis of consciousness, vegetative state, neuronal reactivity, rest–rest interaction, global metabolism, difference-based coding hypothesis of consciousness
