Consciousness PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Consciousness free pdf The recent and increasing interest in consciousness has been concurrent in multiple disciplines including philosophy, psychology, and experimental neurobiology. There are many books on consciousness, but most are from a philosophy or psychology perspective. This book provides a molecular perspective which is unique. Since more and more researchers (molecular neuroscientist, biochemists, neurochemists) are moving into the area, this book fills an unserviced place in the market. It will provide a rigorous evaluation of consciousness at a level of interest primarily to molecular level researchers (neuroscientists, neuropharmacologists), chemists and perhaps physicists. The book opens with some introduction to the philosophy and psychology perspectives and endeavours to link the conventional study of consciousness with molecular level of study. The molecular basis is then examined from the macromolecular to the submolecular. Next, the molecular basis of abnormal consciousness using human disease provides insights--not done in any conventional books-- and finally the last section breaks down the consciousness into pieces and examines each at a molecular level.
