How The Brain Created Experience

On the most recent Brain Science Podcast, Dr. Ginger Campbell, MD interviewed Jon Mallatt, who co-authored the book,  The Ancient Origins of Consciousness.  The main focus of the interview and the book is on primary consciousness, the most base form of consciousness.

Mallatt differentiated the types of consciousness and utilized an inter-disciplinary approach to the science behind how the brain creates experiences, thus attempting to solve the hard problem of consciousness.  He recommends more focus on the brain function of lower animals rather than humans and other primates, or even other mammals.
