The Neuroscience of Consciousness: From Cells to Self
Consciousness was a much debated topic even within our group. At first David and I had to discuss whether we would be talking about consciousness as in self-awareness or consciousness as in being awake and alert.

Once making this decision the article about how elephants are now found to be self-aware, though interesting, was no longer needed.
