I have been working for the past three years on social 
psychological models of consciousness and have recently 
written a paper integrating Gerald Edelman's 
neurophysiological model of consciousness with that of 
the philosopher, George Herbert Mead.  Edelman 
presented this model in his 1989 book, "The Remembered 
Present: A biological theory of consciousness." (New York: 
Basic Books).  He based his model primarily on his earlier 
development of his "theory of neuronal group selection."
