Corticothalamic necessity, qualia, and consciousness

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):90-91 (2007)
Abstract
The centrencephalic theory of consciousness cannot yet account for some evidence from both brain damaged and normally functioning humans that strongly implicates thalamocortical activity as essential for consciousness. Moreover, the behavioral indexes used by Merker to implicate consciousness need more development, as, besides being somewhat vague, they lead to some apparent contradictions in the attribution of consciousness.
