Several theories claim that dreaming is a random by-product of REM sleep physiology and that it does not serve any natural function. Phenomenal dream content, however, is not as disorganized as suchExpand
Event-related brain potential correlates of visual awareness
Electrophysiological recordings during visual tasks can shed light on the temporal dynamics of the subjective experience of seeing, visual awareness. This paper reviews studies onExpand
Inner Presence: Consciousness as a Biological Phenomenon
The question of consciousness is perhaps the most significant problem still unsolved by science. In Inner Presence, Antti Revonsuo proposes a novel approach to the study of consciousness thatExpand
An ERP study of change detection, change blindness, and visual awareness.
Electrophysiological correlates of change detection and change blindness were studied in 12 observers. The ERP difference between detected changes and undetected changes was considered anExpand
The effects of electromagnetic field emitted by GSM phones on working memory
The influence of pulsed radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields of digital GSM mobile phones on working memory in healthy subjects were studied. Memory load was varied from 0 to 3 items in anExpand
Effects of 902 MHz electromagnetic field emitted by cellular telephones on response times in humans
The present study examined possible influences of a 902 MHz electromagnetic field emitted by cellular telephones on cognitive functioning in 48 healthy humans. A battery of 12 reaction time tasks wasExpand
Consciousness, dreams and virtual realities
Abstract In this paper I develop the thesis that dreams are essential to an understanding of waking consciousness. In the first part I argue in opposition to the philosophers Malcolm and Dennett thatExpand
Effect of a 902 MHz electromagnetic field emitted by mobile phones on human cognitive function: A replication study.
Our study was a replication and extension with methodological improvements to a previous study on effects of the electromagnetic field (EMF) emitted by a 902 MHz mobile phone on human cognitiveExpand
Returning from Oblivion: Imaging the Neural Core of Consciousness
One of the greatest challenges of modern neuroscience is to discover the neural mechanisms of consciousness and to explain how they produce the conscious state. We sought the underlying neuralExpand
Effects of electromagnetic fields emitted by cellular phones on the electroencephalogram during a visual working memory task.
PURPOSE To examine the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by cellular phones on the event-related desynchronization/synchronization (ERD/ERS) responses of the 4-6, 6-8, 8-10 and 10-12Hz EEG frequency bands during cognitive processing. Expand
