A Novel Procedure for the Assessment of Multidimensional Brain Activities

Authors: Arturo Tozzi
Comments: 6 Pages.

The brain activity displays hidden functional dimensions, apart from the conventionally assessed three spatial ones (plus time). This finding, corroborated by a long sequence of recent experimental observations, requires novel methodological devices in order to provide a mathematical treatment for such elusive nervous extra-dimensions. Here we describe a novel, simple approach that makes feasible to extract hidden multidimensional information from real neurodata series, in order to detect, assess and quantify a fourth spatial dimension of cortical activity. Also, our technique might stand for the first step towards an artificial nervous network equipped with four spatial dimensions, instead of the classical three.

Chance: a Method that Enables a Researcher to Fully Know the Content of Consciousness of a Subject in Scientific Experiments

Authors: Daisuke H. Tanaka, Tsutomu Tanabe
Comments: 14 Pages.

The content of consciousness (cC) constitutes an essential part of our human life and the very heart of the hard problem of consciousness. In science, the cC of a subject (participant) has been examined indirectly through measuring his/her behavioral reports, bodily signs, or neural signals. None of them, however, reflects the full spectrum of the subject’s cC, hampering a researcher to fully know the subject’s cC and find its neural basis precisely and extensively. Here we propose a method, termed CHANCE that enables a researcher to experience and know directly the full spectrum of the subject’s cC in scientific experiments. The degree of epistemic objectivity of a specific entity has been reasonably judged by relevant individuals who have the ability to judge the faithfulness of the entity to the truth (the true facts). More number of relevant individuals who judge the entity as the truth results in more objectivity of the entity epistemically. Thus, even the knowledge of a specific cC itself would be regarded as epistemically objective if it was judged as the truth (being truly had) by multiple relevant individuals. We propose CHANCE consisting of three empirical steps to change the knowledge of the cC itself from epistemically subjective to objective: (1) finding a minimally-sufficient content-knowledge-specific neural correlates of consciousness (msckNCC), and (2) selecting an msckNCC that produces the knowledge of only one specific cC but not others, and finally, (3) among the msckNCCs that verified the 2nd step, selecting an msckNCC that is reproducible in multiple brains.

Psychological Program

Authors: Duan xianxiang
Comments: 20 Pages.

By referring to case study, this dissertation is in attempt to lay bare that people’s psychological activities are a set of programs and psychological and mental disease is accrued to procedural operation’s going awry or set-up of erroneous programs. By amending or learning correct use of these psychological programs can we precisely or thoroughly treat psychological and mental diseases. An integrated psychological treatment process contains psychological analysis plus amended psychological programs. A string of psychological reaction initiated in a human body to initiate a specific assignment is called psychological program. Such ‘initiation’ is both ‘conscious’ and ‘unconscious’. Lookout for psychological program hinges on psychological analysis and scientific hypnosis.

Приглашение на Жизнь (Invitation to Life)

Authors: Emanuel Gluskin
Comments: 105 Pages. Respectable critique of V.V. Nabokov

Памяти покойного Йоси Баная – Выдающегося Израильского Барда, Сатирика, и Воспитателя … всех. Он как-то сказал об одном молодом эстрадном 'герое': "Всё воет и воет – сколько можно?! Вопрос в том – есть ли ему что сказать?" Действительно -- ЧТО есть ему сказать, и на каком коне ему скакать?! Изрядно сказано – пускай его потужит, пускай перу пророков он послужит …. . Но КТО его родная мать?

Sleeping Stem Cells Brain Repair

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 43 Pages.

Scientists at the Wellcome Trust/ Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge, have identified a new type of stem cell in the brain which they say has a high potential for repair following brain injury or disease. [30] A team of researchers working at the Weizmann Institute of Science has found that organoids can be used to better understand how the human brain wrinkles as it develops. [29] A team of biologists has found an unexpected source for the brain's development, a finding that offers new insights into the building of the nervous system. [28] Researchers discover both the structure of specific brain areas and memory are linked to genetic activity that also play important roles in immune system function. [27] The inner workings of the human brain have always been a subject of great interest. Unfortunately, it is fairly difficult to view brain structures or intricate tissues due to the fact that the skull is not transparent by design. [26] But now there is a technology that enables us to "read the mind" with growing accuracy: functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). [25]

Genes Shape Behavior

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 46 Pages.

While in graduate school at The Rockefeller University, Dr. Bendesky hypothesized that this marked behavioral difference would show up in the animals' DNA. [31] In previous studies, Camarillo's lab had outfitted 31 college football players with special mouthguards that recorded how players' heads moved after an impact, including a few cases in which players suffered concussions. [30] A team of researchers working at the Weizmann Institute of Science has found that organoids can be used to better understand how the human brain wrinkles as it develops. [29] A team of biologists has found an unexpected source for the brain's development, a finding that offers new insights into the building of the nervous system.

[27] The inner workings of the human brain have always been a subject of great interest. Unfortunately, it is fairly difficult to view brain structures or intricate tissues due to the fact that the skull is not transparent by design. [26] But now there is a technology that enables us to "read the mind" with growing accuracy: functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). [25] Advances in microscopy techniques have often triggered important discoveries in the field of neuroscience, enabling vital insights in understanding the brain and promising new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. [24] What is the relationship of consciousness to the neurological activity of the brain? Does the brain behave differently when a person is fully conscious, when they are asleep, or when they are undergoing an epileptic seizure? [23] Consciousness appears to arise naturally as a result of a brain maximizing its information content. So says a group of scientists in Canada and France, which has studied how the electrical activity in people's brains varies according to individuals' conscious states. The researchers find that normal waking states are associated with maximum values of what they call a brain's "entropy". [22] New research published in the New Journal of Physics tries to decompose the structural layers of the cortical network to different hierarchies enabling to identify the network's nucleus, from which our consciousness could emerge.
