Consciousness Transitions: Phylogenetic, Ontogenetic and by Hans Liljenström,Peter Århem

By Hans Liljenström,Peter Århem

It was once no longer some time past while the realization was once no longer thought of an issue for technology. despite the fact that, this has now replaced and the matter of recognition is taken into account the best problem to technological know-how. within the final decade, various books and articles were released within the box, yet only a few have all in favour of the how realization evolves and develops, and what characterizes the transitions among various awake states, in animals and people. This publication addresses those questions. popular researchers from various fields of technological know-how (including neurobiology, evolutionary biology, ethology, cognitive technological know-how, computational neuroscience and philosophy) give a contribution with their effects and theories during this ebook, making it a special selection of the cutting-edge of this younger box of recognition studies.

  • First publication at the topic
  • Focus on varied degrees of awareness, together with: Evolutionary, developmental, and functional
  • Highly interdisciplinary
