Frontiers of Consciousness by Lawrence Weiskrantz

Book Description

In recent years consciousness has become a significant area of study in the cognitive sciences. The 'Frontiers of Consciousness' is a major interdisciplinary exploration of consciousness. The book stems from the Chichele lectures held at All Souls College in Oxford, and features contributions from a 'who's who' of authorities from both philosophy and psychology. The result is a truly interdisciplinary volume, which tackles some of the biggest and most impenetrable problems in consciousness. The book includes chapters considering the apparent explanatory gap between science and consciousness, our conscious experience of emotions such as fear, and of willed actions by ourselves and others. It looks at subjective differences between two ways in which visual information guides behaviour, and scientific investigation of consciousness in non-human animals. It looks at the challenges that the mind-brain relation presents for clinical practice as well as for theories of consciousness. The book draws on leading research from philosophy, experimental psychology, functional imaging of the brain, neuropsychology, neuroscience, and clinical neurology. Distinctive in its accessibility, authority, and its depth of coverage, 'Frontiers of Consciousness' will be a groundbreaking and influential addition to the consciousness literature.

Blindsight by Lawrence Weiskrantz Blindsight, Paperback (March 2009)

The first edition of Blindsight, written by Lawrence Weiskrantz was an important and highly cited account of studies of the phenomenon - Blindsight. The updated edition retains the original text of the first edition, but brings the book up to date with developments in this area in the past decade.

Consciousness Lost and Found by Lawrence Weiskrantz Consciousness Lost and Found, Paperback (June 1999)

The phenomenon of "consciousness" is intrinsically related to one's awareness of self, time and the physical world. What, then, can be learned about consciousness from those who, as a result of brain damage, suffer from conditions which affect their awareness? The author explores this question.

Attention, Selection, Awareness and Control by Lawrence Weiskrantz Attention, Selection, Awareness and Control, Paperback (September 1995)

This collection of essays is a tribute to Donald Broadbent, one of the most significant researchers in experimental psychology. The contributors describe the impact of Broadbent's work in applied psychology on their own research, and the new developments which have resulted.
