Book Description

Awareness: What it is, What it does is an accessible, up-to-date examination of scientific thinking about the nature of consciousness. Written to be understood by the non-specialist, Chris Nunn begins by describing basic facts about the brain and the physical world. He then examines various theories of consciousness, highlighting their relative strengths and weaknesses, and their practical implications especially for medicine and psychiatry.

The study of awareness is currently a fast developing adn controversial area. This book contains a state-of-the art overview of some of the most exciting theoretical adn experimental advances. It will be of interest to a wide range of academics, students and general readers.

Chris Nunn is a former Consultant Psychiatrist, based in Southampton. He combined his role providing services to local communities with extensive research interests in mind/body relationships and awareness.
