Rhythmic nature of consciousness probed

Understanding how our brains encode thoughts at the cellular level may be a step closer after neuroscientists at MIT discovered groups of neurons encoding specific behavioral rules by oscillating in synchrony, a finding that suggests conscious thought emerges from oscillatory cycles in the brain. The findings, published in Neuron, could help science to finally unravel […]

Their findings, appearing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, are an important step forward in understanding the functional […]
