Mind and Brain: A Skeptical Look (Alzheimer Symposium 2015)

Impressive presentation and fascinating but I lost it at about 10.48 and gave up because I couldn't make that leap from personal intra-brain experience to something external and universal :( My bad, possibly, but I don't have a great problem with individual brain activity (in other words perceived 'experience') being unique and therefore unclassifiable.

It bothers me - yes - that if my brain deteriorates physically to the point where I can no longer remember, think or emote like my younger, more lucid self could, I might be locked into a living hell of semi-consciousness of my former self.

I just hope I won't ever get to that place.
