Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In biological psychology, extended consciousness is an animal's autobiographical self-perception. Extended consciousness is said to arise in the brain of animals with substantial capacity for memory and reason. It does not necessarily require language. The perception of a historic and future self arises from a stream of information from the immediate environment and from neural structures related to memory. A neurology department chairman from University of Iowa College of Medicine popularized the concept. Antonio Damasio theorized extended consciousness to arise in the structures in the human brain he described as image spaces and dispositional spaces. Image spaces imply areas where sensory impressions of all types are processed, including the focused awareness of the core consciousness. Dispositional spaces include convergence zones, which are networks in the brain where memories are processed and recalled, and where knowledge is merged with immediate experience.show more
