Out of curiosity...
What are the courses taken by nervous impulses,
from the senses up to the higher area of the
Do they inevitably the perceptual areas
_before_ going anywhere or can they bypass
the perceptual areas to access directly the rest
of the cortex?
Tell me if I am being silly.
I am trying to figure out(without any neurobio-
logical knowledge whatsoever -- almost) what
are the differences(& links) between perception,
memory and, er... , "conciousness".
If you can suggest me any book on the subject
(one that can be understood by someone who took
some biology courses years ago but doesn't
remember too well the technical bits), I'dd
be gratfull. I'dd also be thankfull to anyone
who has the time to answer me back.
