This book arose out of a concern of a lack of understanding of the physiological processes which underlie consciousness. Knowledge related to the origin of consciousness is essential to many disciplines with an interest in human behavior, but because brain damage often produces impaired consciousness, it is especially important to neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychologists in managing patients.
