Consciousness lost and found : a neuropsychological exploration by Lawrence Weiskrantz( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weiskrantz maps his and others' research onto a philosophical argument which, combined with the latest brain imaging studies, points the way to specific patterns of brain activity and structures that may be involved in conscious awareness. The book also analyses new approaches to the question of animal consciousness, and its evolutionary value. Written in an engaging and accessible style, Consciousness lost and found provides a unique perspective on one of the most challenging issues in science today

Blindsight : a case study and implications by Lawrence Weiskrantz( Book )

35 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies of patients with damage to the neocortex have revealed that some can discriminate certain visual events within their 'blind' fields. They are not aware that they can do so, however: they think that they are only guessing. This book is an account of research into a particular case 'blindsight'

The 'Frontiers of Consciousness' is a truly interdisciplinary volume on consciousness, one which tackles some of the biggest and most impenetrable problems in the field. Distinctive in its accessibility, authority, and its depth of coverage, the book is a groundbreaking and influential addition to the consciousness literature

Studies of: (a) the visual fields of monkeys (b) memory processes as affected by cerebral lesions in monkeys( Book )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work consists of the analysis of the visual cortex and its relation to behaviour, and of the changes in mnemonic function following circumscribed cerebral lesions and stimulation in the monkey. The work is concerned with establishing the nature of the residual capacity and of trying to determine whether the basis for the acuity results lies within the retinal grain or in the non-independence of units within the visual pathways. The work suggests that the residual capacity is simply the integral of the types of responses found from retinal ganglion cells. Memory changes were analyzed in terms of a distinction between short-term and long-term processes. Results tentatively suggest that frontal cortical lesions or stimulation, might be characterized as producing an alteration in retrieval from the short-term store, this in turn being produced by an alteration in stimulus sampling. Temporal lobe lesions appear to affect transfer from short-term to long-term store, without affecting the capacity of either store. Current work is directed towards finding the critical structures, if any, in the temporal lobes and also in thalamic regions. (Author)

Brain story( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prof. Susan Greenfield (Univ. of Oxford) considers that identifying the seat of consciousness in the brain is the ultimate quest for science. People with blindsight - the ability to respond to visual events that they cannot physically see - may provide a clue to the location of consciousness as they employ more than ordinary awareness. Anaesthesia suggests another line of enquiry - what happens in the brain when consciousness is lost? An unusual theatrical demonstration of mind over matter in which performers undergo all kinds of normally agonising feats without feeling pain, shows how consciousness can be manipulated. Experiments in the U.S. and Britain challenge the assumption that ordinary actions are the results of free will as the brain appears to prepare for the action before the subject has decided to carry it out. All these findings seem to add to the mystery of consciousness rather than elucidate it. Among those taking part in the programme are Prof. Larry Weiskrantz (Univ. of Oxford), Dr. Franz Vollenweider (Psychiatric Hospital, Univ. of Vienna), Dr. Patrick Haggard (University College, London), Prof. M. Gazzaniga (Dartmouth College, New Hampshire)
