The complexities of the human brain and how they give rise to experience are some of the greatest mysteries remaining today. This Annals volume presents transcripts and individual papers stemming from a four-part series entitled “The Emerging Science of Consciousness: Mind, Brain, and the Human Experience,” sponsored by the Nour Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences. Moderated by Steve Paulson, Executive Producer of Wisconsin Public Radio’s To the Best of Our Knowledge, panelist experts in science and the humanities discuss the nature of consciousness, the mind, and the brain and provide insight into the perennial quest to live a more meaningful life.
