Human consciousness is supported by dynamic complex patterns of brain signal coordination
The results establish that consciousness rests on the brain’s ability to sustain rich brain dynamics and pave the way for determining specific and generalizable fingerprints of conscious and unconscious states.

The results suggest that preferred music exposure might have effects on patients auditory network (implied in rhythm and music perception) and on cerebral regions linked to autobiographical memory.
Randomized controlled trial of home-based 4-week tDCS in chronic minimally conscious state
Function–structure connectivity in patients with severe brain injury as measured by MRI‐DWI and FDG‐PET
A stronger relationship between structural integrity of thalamo‐inferiorparietal tracts and thalamic metabolism in patients who have emerged from the minimally conscious state as compared with patients with disorders of consciousness was found, in line with the mesocircuit hypothesis for the emergence of consciousness.
Functional Connectivity Substrates for tDCS Response in Minimally Conscious State Patients
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive technique recently employed in disorders of consciousness, and determining a transitory recovery of signs of consciousness in almost…
Multifaceted brain networks reconfiguration in disorders of consciousness uncovered by co‐activation patterns
This work aims to investigate the dynamic properties of the default mode network's (DMN) connectivity in patients with disorders of consciousness.
Diagnostic accuracy of the CRS-R index in patients with disorders of consciousness
The obtained CRS-R index offers the opportunity to improve the interpretation of clinical assessment and can be used in (longitudinal) research protocols to evaluate its potential for clinics and research.
DMT Models the Near-Death Experience
A significant overlap in nearly all of the NDE phenomenological features is found when comparing DMT-induced NDEs with a matched group of ‘actual’ NDE experiencers, and a striking similarity between these states that warrants further investigation is revealed.
Qualitative thematic analysis of the phenomenology of near-death experiences
The results shed the light on the structure of the narratives by identifying 10 “time-bounded” themes which refer to isolated events encountered during the NDE and 1 “transversal” theme which characterizes the whole narrative and generally appears as a retrospective comment of self-reflection on the experience.
