Advanced Seminar Readings 

 

 

Readings for Saturday, 2 pm, October 4. Bernard Baars will be presenting DISCUSSION PAPER A  Global Workspace Interpretation of the MTL-NC system. Baars - DISCUSSION PAPER - Advanced Seminar Oct 4 2008.pdf

 

(MTL is the medial temporal lobe, which includes the hippocampus. NC is the neocortex, which is the great bulk of human cortex.)

 

The Baars draft Discussion Paper  should not be cited or quoted; it is still very much in a process of  revision.

 

For background on the MTL system (the hippocampus and related structure), here is a chapter from Baars & Gage (2007) textbook, Cognition, Brain & Consciousness: An Introduction to Cognitive Neuroscience. Baars&Gage_2007_cbc_CH009.pdf

 

This chapter is copyrighted by Elsevier, Inc. (Academic Press), and should only be used for this seminar. (But you're welcome to buy the book! (:)) ). Chinese and Korean language editions are in the works... . You can find it on the Elsevier textbook website, and on Amazon.com.

Here are some additional pictures that are useful:

Brain Rhythms Reading 1. A great example of "contrastive analysis," comparing conscious vs. unconscious visual perception. The conscious condition showed much more widespread rhythmic brain synchrony than the unconscious condition. This is an important expansion previous work  led by one of the co-authors, Wolf Singer. You can download by clicking on the blue underlined pdf file, below. This article is also available free from the journal. You can also find it on PubMed.

Suggestion: Just read the Abstract a few times, until  you get the idea, and then focus on the Figures and their captions.
