The book is called _The Astonishing Hypothesis_. Though I just glanced at
it, I think he's refering to the hypothesis that mind and consciousness can
be reduced to brains and neurons and reviewing recent work in areas like
vision science and probably his new theories (Crick & Koch) on the role of
thalamic activation on attention/consciousnees. I seem to remember seeing
a review, perhaps in a recent _Science_ or _Nature_ issue, which was rather
mediocre but I can't recall the details.
