Manage episode 329906587 series 52378
This month's episode of Brain Science is an interview with Hakwan Lau, author of In Consciousness we Trust: The Cognitive Neuroscience of Subjective Experience. Lau talks about shortcomings in current theories about how the brain generates consciousness, but he also introduces something he calls perceptual reality monitoring.
Although this is a somewhat technical discussion it is accessible to listeners who are new to the neuroscience of consciousness.
