5. From Correlates to Theories of Consciousness

Chapter of: Human and Machine Consciousness(pp. 69–84)
The fifth chapter explains how we can develop mathematical theories of the relationship between consciousness and the physical world. Scientists have carried out pilot studies that have looked for correlations between consciousness and brain activity. We are now starting to create compact mathematical theories that can map between physical and conscious states. It might be possible to use computational methods to develop these theories automatically.
