A Compositional Model of Consciousness Based on Consciousness-Only

This work sets up a framework which naturally subsumes one of the main features of consciousness that is characterized as being other-dependent by defining a compact closed category where morphisms represent conscious processes.

An evaluation of the Integrated Information Theory against some central problems of consciousness

This thesis evaluates the integrated information theory (IIT) by looking at how it may answersome central problems of consciousness that the author thinks any theory of consciousnessshould be able ...

Perceptual integrality of foreign segmental and tonal information: Dimensional transfer hypothesis

This study investigates whether (a) Cantonese and (b) English listeners integrally or independently perceive Thai tone and segmental information. Listeners completed a modified AX discrimination

Signal detectability and boldness are not the same: the function of defensive colouration in nudibranchs is distance-dependent

Aposematic signals advertise underlying defences in many species. They should be detectable (highly contrasting against the background) and bold (high internal pattern contrast) to enhance predator

From the origins to the stream of consciousness and its neural correlates

There are now dozens of very different theories of consciousness, each somehow contributing to our understanding of its nature. The science of consciousness needs therefore not new theories but a

Evaluating interhemispheric connectivity during midline object recognition using EEG

Using high-density EEG and applying more appropriate and robust measures of connectivity as well as statistical analysis to validate and enhance current knowledge on the neural basis of midline object recognition is validated.

Electromagnetism’s Bridge Across the Explanatory Gap: How a Neuroscience/Physics Collaboration Delivers Explanation Into All Theories of Consciousness

Fundamental physics (the standard model of particle physics) is focused on, which brings to light a foundational argument for how the brain is an essentially electromagnetic (EM) field object from the atomic level up.

Scene Interpretation Method using Transformer and Self-supervised Learning

What Neuroscientists Think, and Don’t Think, About Consciousness

An investigation into the EM field at the cellular scale provides the possibility of identifying the outward signs of a mechanism in fundamental terms (physics), as opposed to merely describing the correlates of the authors' mental abstractions of it.

From Generative Models to Generative Passages: A Computational Approach to (Neuro) Phenomenology

This paper presents a version of neurophenomenology based on generative modelling techniques developed in computational neuroscience and biology. Our approach can be described as computational

Role of Reticular Activation in the Modulation of Intracortical Synchronization

During aroused states of the brain, electroencephalographic activity is characterized by fast, irregular fluctuations of low amplitude, which are thought to reflect desynchronization of neuronal

Towards a neurobiological theory of consciousness

The neural basis of very short-term memory especia needs more study, and several lines of work are outfits that might advance the understanding of the neural mechanisms involved.
