When we open our eyes, a wave of neuronal activity sweeps through our visual system. Visual information travels from the retina to the brain, and the brain infers meaning from the received information. We become aware of the world around us. How do these neuronal signals give rise to our phenomenological experience? In this talk, I will present work that begins to address this question by relating the subjective perceptual experience of visual objects to the associated neuronal information processing as measured by functional magnetic resonance imaging.
