Solving the Mind-Body Problem by the CODAM Neural Model of Consciousness?

Authors: Taylor, John G.

  • CODAM is the first model of consciousness to be supported by detailed scientific experimental data from the human brain
  • CODAM provides an approach to the evolution of human consciousness over the eons, thereby also providing a unique understanding of possible animal consciousnesses as evolved on the way to the human variety
  • CODAM provides a framework in which to understand the whole area of human meditation experiences, including pure consciousness and more complete meditative states
  • CODAM provides an understanding of a range of mental diseases, especially the key one of schizophrenia (but also including Alzheimer’s disease and aspects of autism)
  • The ultimate application of CODAM is to understand, from the unique viewpoint of the brain basis for human consciousness, humans in society, this is given in terms of their emotional and intellectual needs by a developing CODAM-based brain

About this book

This book details a model of consciousness supported by scientific experimental data from the human brain. It presents how the Corollary Discharge of Attention Movement (CODAM) neural network model allows for a scientific understanding of consciousness as well as provides a solution to the Mind-Body problem. The book provides readers with a general approach to consciousness that is powerful enough to lead to the inner self and its ramifications for the vast range of human experiences. It also offers an approach to the evolution of human consciousness and features chapters on mental disease (especially schizophrenia) and on meditative states (including drug-induced states of mind). Solving the Mind-Body Problem bridges the gap that exists between philosophers of mind and the neuroscience community, allowing the enormous weight of theorizing on the nature of mind to be brought to earth and put under the probing gaze of the scientific facts of life and mind.
