Document Summary

Having free will: able to make a conscious decision. A person"s mental content, thoughts and imaginings. Interdisciplinary study of the brain activity linked with cognition. Dreaming: being fully asleep and still consciously dreaming. Ex: when climbing a volcano, and seeing the sun rise, people believe that it looks like a spiritual scene, but its really oxygen deprivation that causes that hallucination. Cognitive neuroscientists: explore and map conscious cortex function and can sometimes read minds (see where the mind is lighting up, ex: fmri machines, suggest consciousness arises from synchronized brain activity. Evidence of awareness: when asked to imagine playing tennis or navigating her home, a vegetative (unconscious state) patient"s brain exhibited activity similar to a healthy person"s brain. Dualists say yes the mind and body are interacting but distinct entities. Monists argue that the mind and body are different aspects of the same thing: awareness of mind and body are linked together.
