`In pursuing the editors' stated aim of understanding the brain mechanisms of consciousness, this book presents a valuable interdisciplinaryt perspective. An impressive body of research is fathered which, coupled with some insightful speculation offered by several authors, significantly clarifies many of the issues surrounding higher cognitive function ... it conveys effectively the rich diversity of research that informs the science of consciousness.' Brian L. Lancaster, Trends in Cognitive Sciences - Vol. 1, No. 4, July 1997
