Episode 90 of the Brain Science Podcast is a discussion of "Self Comes To Mind: Constructing the Conscious Brain" by Antonio Damasio. Damasio's book focuses on the answer to two key questions: How does the brain generate the Mind? and How does the Brain generate Consciousness? His approach is unusual because many scientists and writers treat the Mind and Consciousness as identical. In contrast, Damasio argues that Mind proceeds Consciousness. Listen to this podcast to learn how the Mind becomes Conscious. For episode shownotes, including references and free episode transcripts go to http://brainsciencepodcast.com.
