Summary
Every morning we wake up and regain consciousness - that is a marvelous fact - but what exactly is it that we regain? In this TEDTalk, neuroscientist Antonio Damasio uses this simple question to give us a glimpse into how our brains create our sense of self. Damasio's work has had a major influence on current understanding of our neural systems, which underlie memory, language, and consciousness.
