The Quest for Consciousness: A Neurobiological Approach

Christof Koch

In 'The Quest for Consciousness,' Caltech neuroscientist Christof Koch explores the biological basis of consciousness. He outlines a framework that he and Francis Crick (of DNA 'double helix' fame) have constructed to come to grips with the ancient mind-body problem. At the heart of their framework is a sustained, empirical approach to discovering and characterizing the neuronal correlates of consciousness - the NCC - the subtle, flickering patterns of brain activity that underlie each and every conscious experience.
