Steve and I discuss his book Conscious Mind, Resonant Brain: How Each Brain Makes a Mind.  The book is a huge collection of his models and their predictions and explanations for a wide array of cognitive brain functions. Many of the models spring from his Adaptive Resonance Theory (ART) framework, which explains how networks of neurons deal with changing environments while maintaining self-organization and retaining learned knowledge. ART led Steve to the hypothesis that all conscious states are resonant states, which we discuss. There are also guest questions from György Buzsáki, Jay McClelland, and John Krakauer.

“Sweet Data Dreams” by Daphne Cornelisse.
