The helmholtz club was a group of nero scientists, primarily, and some cognitive scientists like me. We were trying to solve this open issue in cognitive neura science: what is the relationship between brain activity and our conscious experiences? So we met in secret, basically, at the university club at us Ervine,. Not because it was clandestine in any bad sense, but because francis crick, if people knew that francis was there, we would be mobbed and wouldn't get anything done. And so i think what krick and the helmels club was really about was doing the same thing for consciousness that crick and watson had done for life.
