Description

Scientific study of the brain has come a long way since the days of mapping bumps on heads. Investigating the brain "from the outside" has made dramatic advances, with brain scanning technology, such as PET and fMRI, bringing great precision to results. However, examining the "view from within" the brain has not kept such a dramatic pace. This book presents results of first-person investigations, that examines the conscious mind "from the inside". Psychology, philosophy and contemplative religious traditions all contribute to the range of methods used to examine the mind as precise and reliably as the weights and measures of physical science.
