The human superior colliculus: Neither necessary, nor sufficient for consciousness?

  • Susanne Watkins (a1) and Geraint Rees (a1)
Abstract

Non-invasive neuroimaging in humans permits direct investigation of the potential role for mesodiencephalic structures in consciousness. Activity in the superior colliculus can be correlated with the contents of consciousness, but it can be also identified for stimuli of which the subject is unaware; and consciousness of some types of visual stimuli may not require the superior colliculus.
