THE BOOK in beginning with definitions of familiar words such as graph, category, pattern in unfamiliar terminology tends to intellectually--experientially--disorient many, and those that remain by virtue of being focused on one of the many disparate subjects of empirical study such as neuroscience, economics, social studies, philosophy, or mathematics tend to find the application or indications of applicability of the general abstract theory to those fields of study of which they are not interested by virtue of their interest in THE BOOK as a presentation of a thorough understanding of a particular body of knowledge that they are trying to comprehend distracting, if not, again, disorienting.
If I may, I think, I cannot help but think how intellectually engaging it would have been to have a "textbook" version of THE BOOK, say, beginning, as it does, with definitions and going all the way, say, in the neuroscience textbook version, to action potentials, via, say, interpreting the theory in the category of vector spaces or linear categories without necessarily committing to any attendant ontological demands, if so desired.
Alternatively, one could go the opposite--to the general-to-particular--way i. Before a moment could pass by--as soon as the above noted thought crystallized, it occurred to me that that's what I'd like to do, and as soon as I thought of doing I also realized that it's a "lifetime" project, but I decided to take up the project.
This project is all the more important in light of the realization that the reviewed work is a subject of study for the next generation, for the present generation of working neuroscientists are far too cynical--too content with knowing--rarely reaching for comprehension, next-door--for no fault of theirs--seem oblivious to the very notion of comprehension distinct from knowing i.

Yet, for 21st century science and philosophy, one of the greatest challenges is to explain what consciousness really is.
Consciousness is currently one of the hottest topics in psychological science, neuroscience, and philosophy. Will science ever be able to truly explain the relationship between our subjective conscious experiences and the objective neural activities going on in the brain? At the University of Turku, a growing group of researchers has focused on consciousness ever since the 's. We have three intertwined lines of research: Philosophy of consciousness, Visual consciousness, and Altered states of consciousness. In this line of research, Prof. Antti Revonsuo has been developing a theoretical and philosophical view about consciousness called Biological Realism.
Metaphysically, Biological Realism is a variety of emergent materialism as a mind-body theory and indirect, representative realism as a theory of perception. Our main focus is on the contents of consciousness during unresponsiveness, and the neural mechanisms that underlie the loss and return of the state of consciousness. By using anesthesia and sleep to modulate the state of consciousness, we aim to separate consciousness from responsiveness, and connectedness from disconnectedness.
The major methods we use include the pharmacological manipulation of consciousness by anesthetic agents, high-resolution imaging of brain activity, and electrophysiological measurements during anesthesia and sleep. Data concerning the subjective contents of consciousness is collected and combined with brain imaging and neurophysiological measurements. We test whether dream content is specialized in simulating events that have had especially high evolutionary significance during human evolutionary history, such as dangerous and threatening situations or social bonding and interaction with other significant individuals.
The methods we use include content analysis of dream diaries, daily logs, experience sampling, interviews, and questionnaires.
Neurocognitive basis of dreaming The objective of this project is to study the neural correlates of dream emotions, and the frequency and quality of emotions in dreams, utilizing home dream diaries, and sleep laboratory awakenings and measurements. Our focus lies heavily in methodological issues, such as how data collection where, when, how and analysis methods who, how affect the results of dream studies. Nightmares Prevalence, risk factors and consequences of nightmares This joint project between University of Turku and National Institute of Health and Welfare investigates the prevalence, risk factors and consequences of frequent nightmares among Finnish adults, utilizing the FINRISK population level epidemiological questionnaire data.
