Embodied Mind Neuroscience
Here is Antonio Damasio giving an extremely brief over view of the neurological basis for consciousness. This is a scratch of the surface of his book Self Comes To Mind in which he lays out his view of the "problem of consciousness." His perspective is particularly well informed by his clinical history as a neurologist who saw almost every neurological case in some midwestern state for many years, and his brilliant work on systematically understanding (and explaining) how it all fits together.
