A 47 year old man named Carl died of cancer, and at the moment he was pronounced dead, a series of carefully-orchestrated procedures was performed on his body. A team standing by began cardiopulmonary support to keep air moving into his lungs and blood through his veins. They lowered his body temperature with icepacks and transported him to a Cryonics facility several hundred miles away. There he was permanently frozen in a container of liquid nitrogen at a temperature of degrees Celsius. Carl went the cheaper route. He paid for this procedure with his life insurance money in hopes that he could be reanimated in the future when a cure for his type of cancer could be discovered. Science would also have to solve other technical problems before successfully reanimating him.
Philosophy of Mind is the branch of philosophy that studies the nature of the mind mental events , mental functions , mental properties and consciousness and its relationship to the physical body. It intersects to some extent with the fields of neurobiology , computer science and psychology. Within philosophy, the Philosophy of Mind is usually considered a part of Metaphysics , and has been particularly studied by schools of thought such as Analytic Philosophy , Phenomenology and Existentialism , although it has been discussed by philosophers from the earliest times. It has a potential influence on philosophical questions such as the nature of death , the nature of free will , the nature of what a person is and his or her identity and the self , and the nature of emotion , perception and memory. The central issue in Philosophy of Mind is the mind-body problem the relationship of the mind to the body , and the challenge is to explain how a supposedly non-material mind can influence a material body and vice-versa. The two major schools of thought that attempt to resolve this problem are Dualism and Monism see the sections below , with Pluralism as a small minority viewpoint. However, there are those notably Ludwig Wittgenstein and his followers who reject the problem as an illusory one which has arisen purely because mental and biological vocabulary are incompatible, and such illusory problems arise if one tries to describe the one in terms of the other's vocabulary, or if the mental vocabulary is used in the wrong contexts.
are similar to those treated by the cognitive sciences, such as neurobiology,. computational science, and cognitive psychology.

This issue celebrates a double anniversary for the neuroscience of consciousness and one of its most central notions, the neural correlates of consciousness NCC. In , in the seminal anthology "The neural correlates of consciousness: Empirical and conceptual questions" edited by Thomas Metzinger, David Chalmers answered the question "What is a neural correlate of consciousness? This special issue, edited by Sascha Benjamin Fink, celebrates this double anniversary with seven original articles and will be extended by a second issue in early

While the psychology of today reflects the discipline's rich and varied history, the origins of psychology differ significantly from contemporary conceptions of the field. In order to gain a full understanding of psychology, you need to spend some time exploring its history and origins. How did psychology originate? When did it begin?
