independently at even the most basic level
{
Snapshot page 16: the dilemma in relating behaviour and consciousness
Idea that we have a lot of different cognitive function controlled in different brain areas and
there is not one center -they can't be tied into one brain region that controls it all
{
Expresses the puzzle that, although the brain analyses sensory events through multiple,
parallel channels that do not converge on a single brain region, we perceive a unified
representation of our experiences
{
Removal of medial parts of the temporal lobes in 1953 to treat epilepsy
|
Case illustrates that there are separate areas in the brain for different aspects of
memory
|

|
Found that his memory impairments were specific to specific types of memory functions
|
Suffered from anterograde amnesia -proven that he was able to learn new things
though

Henry Molaison (H.M.)
{
{
Part of the brain hypothesis: brain is working together to allow you to have these experiences

Conscious and Unconscious Neural Streams
Mediates actions controlled by conscious visual perception
|
Pathway from visual cortex to temporal lobe (as in D.F.)
|
Ventral Stream
{
Vision for action without conscious awareness
|
Mediates actions controlled by unconscious visual processes
|
Pathway from visual cortex to parietal cortex (as in patients with visual ataxia)
