Modes of consciousness

Abstract

In this chapter, modes of consciousness are distinguished from states of consciousness. A mode of consciousness is a global way of being conscious, such as waking, dreaming, seizures, and the minimally conscious state. States of consciousness are content specific, such as hearing music or feeling pain. Both modes and states of consciousness contrast with “levels of consciousness” in neurology. This original framework helps readers understand how the consciousness after brain damage is similar in some ways and different in other ways from normal consciousness.
