Despite much more sophisticated drugs and methods that produce the distinct unconsciousness of general anesthesia, there are still many unknowns about how this unconsciousness works. Professor Emery Brown, a leading researcher in this field, discusses how the brain functions under general anesthesia and how new insights in this area are leading to an understanding of the other states of unconsciousness, sleep and coma.
