QUOTATIONS ABOUT CONSCIOUSNESS

"The search for the neural basis of consciousness, the philosopher's stone of brain mapping, is providing fascinating insights into its quarry." (181)

"The frontal lobes are also responsible for our conscious perception of emotion and our ability to attend and focus. Most important of all, it endows the world with meaning and our lives with a sense of purpose." (181)

"The frontal cortex is the part of the human brain that mushroomed most dramatically during our transition from hominid to human and it makes up about 28 percent of the cortical area of the human brain, which is a far larger proportion than in any other animal." (181-182)

"The frontal lobes are where ideas are created; plans constructed; thoughts joined with their associations to form new memories; and fleeting perceptions held in mind until they are dispatched to long-term memory or to oblivion. (180)

"The frontal lobes are the home of consciousness: consciousness arises here, and emotions are transformed in this place from physical survival systems to subjective feelings." (180)

"If you were to draw a 'you are here' sign on your map of the mind, it is to the frontal lobes that the arrow would point!" (180)

"This new view of the brain echoes an ancient knowledge, since it is here that mystics traditionally placed the 'Third Eye', which was considered to be the gateway to the highest point of awareness." (180)
