In this issue of The Brain: consciousness. Thanks in part to some advanced imaging techniques, neuroscience now has tools to investigate some of its biggest puzzles, including the biggest of them all — the neural origins of consciousness. We hear thoughts on the subject from eight of the most prominent minds of neuroscience.
Also in this issue, the other senses — the forms of perception we have that don't fit into the classic five categories. Explore some of the most promising technology to restore sight to the blind, and meet the man who navigates the world by sound.
Plus, is math hardwired into our brains? And a surprisingly simple path to creating your own peace of mind.
