New insights into the brain’s consciousness-mediating mechanisms

It’s common knowledge that humans’ conscious minds “reside” in the frontal cortex. Or is it? Recent discoveries have led to an intriguing alternate theory: that consciousness, as a process, arises in and around the interaction of various brain regions. A team of

Trans fats linked to cognitive defects and dementia

Dr. Gene Bowman and colleagues of Oregon Health & Science University recently published a study linking specific nutrient patterns to brain and cognitive function. Published in the Dec 8 issue of Neurology, Dr. Bowman et al. analyzed   104 healthy elderly adults, and found links

Quantum Physics in neuroscience and psychology: a neurophysical model of mind-brain interaction

Schwartz, Stapp, & Beauregard: Quantum Physique in Neurologie All I can say about this is, this paper gets right to the heart of the problem: is there “will?” Do we have volition? We might just. – Significant quote (one of

On the Uniqueness of Human Cognition

Note: this is an essay I wrote for my Biological Psychology class. We were asked to write specifically on the “evidence that human cognition is unique” and its neurological correlates, and were not asked whether or not human cognition is unique. I mean, of course it
