Is this brain cell your ‘mind’s eye’? Only brain activity involving ‘L5p neurons’ enters conscious awareness, says new theory

No-one understands what attaches recognition– the state of awareness– with its components, i.e. ideas as well as experiences. Currently scientists suggest a classy remedy: an actual, architectural link. ‘ Web content circuits’ within the cortex are connected into ‘switchboard circuits’ that allot recognition, claims the concept, through cortical cells called L5p nerve cells. Creating in Frontiers in Solution Neuroscience, the team supplies proof– as well as cautions. Their obstacle to experimentalists: if awareness calls for … CONTINUE READING
