1) EDITORIAL REVIEW --- SIXTH COMMENTARY ON CRICK & KOCH
Some good things about Crick & Kochs Framework for consciousness.
By Bernard J. Baars
Science and Consciousness Review has just published a summary and four
commentaries about the significant new article by Francis Crick and Christof
Koch, titled A framework for consciousness.
Most SCR commentaries in this series have been critical. I understand the
criticisms. What may be lost in the debate, however, is an understanding of
how far we have come in the scientific study of consciousness, in little
more than a decade. In my view, Crick and Koch give us a progress report:
Yes, there are many remaining gaps, but we are consistently learning more
and more. Consciousness is back on the scientific frontier as a major topic,
and there are signs of an early consensus on a number of questions.
2) GUEST EDITORIAL
Neurophenomenology: How to combine subjective experience with brain evidence
By Antoine Lutz
In this study we investigated whether refined first-person data from trained
subjects could be used to guide the detection and interpretation of neural
processes. This study is an attempt to implement a research program labelled
« Neurophenomenology » (Varela, 1996). This style of research takes part to
the recent interest in using introspective phenomenological reports
phenomenology in studying brain basis of consciousness.
