Contemporary models of consciousness, part II

Journal of Mind and Behavior 12 (3):407-420 (1991)
Abstract
Recent models of consciousness are reviewed which explore the relationship of consciousness to physical laws; many of these also explore the relationship of consciousness to biological findings. Issues investigated by these models are discussed, with the issues framed in a general way in order to provide a comparison between the models. In Part II the issues discussed include: Does all of the information content of consciousness correspond to neural coding in the brain? Does consciousness follow the brain passively, or can it act independently? Is independent processing by consciousness compatible with the second law of thermodynamics?
