Even if they do find the neural correlate of consciousness....all you then have is a mapping, not an actual explanation. It doesn't explain WHY this neural state should have awareness associated with it, and can't just get on with being a bunch of physics without that awareness.

Seriously, for some reason, when I read this I see 'WHY' all the way down, just like it's 'turtles' all the way down...
