In this book, I argue for a focus on correlations between the self and the brain to explain consciousnes
The 9 chapters discuss the unity, continuity, and adherence of experience in the context of neuroscience, neuropsychology, and philosophy

“Brain Self and Consciousness” discusses consciousness from the perspectives of neuroscience, neuropsychiatry and philosophy. It develops a novel approach in consciousness studies by charting the pathways in which the brain challenges the self and the self challenges the brain. The author argues that the central issue in brain studies is to explain the unity, continuity, and adherence of experience, whether it is sensory or mental awareness, phenomenal- or self-consciousness. To address such a unity is to understand mutual challenges that the brain and the self pose for each other.

The fascinating discussion that this book presents is: How do the brain and self create the conspiracy of experience where the physicality of the brain is lost in the subjectivity of the self?
