Science of Consciousness
September 2011 in Seattle
What happens in your brain when you watch a red sunset or stub your toe? Science is beginning to understand the basis of consciousness, which in part comes from organized tissues in mammals' brains.
In this Science Café, Dr. Christof Koch of the Allen Institute for Brain Science explores what is known about the neurobiology of consciousness, the limits to our knowledge, and current experiments to discover the nerves and other biological components that make us conscious.
