Neurophysiological Study of Animals’ Subjective Experience

  • V. B. Shvyrkov


Early concepts of brain processes were based on clinical observations and experiments with stimulation and lesions of various brain structures. The data collected by these methods laid the foundation for the morphofunctional understanding of brain activity.
