Most of the consciousness websites I've looked at are written by (and
primarily for) philosophers. I think this is because the issues still lend
themselves far more readily to philosophical speculation than 'hard science'.

I'd recommend you look at http://www.hku.hk/philodep/www/mind.htm

This provides a table of links to relevant websites of various kinds. I won't
pretend to have explored all of the many links on this page, but there's
plenty of neuroscience amidst the options.
