Researchers Identify Source of Brain Consciousness

New research identifies how patterns of electrical activity create the inner state known as “consciousness”!

Using EEG (brain-wave sensing) and MRI measurements, researchers found evidence for the “global workspace theory” that pre-conscious perceptions are then broadcast into the brain’s neural network. Researchers correlated activity there with known levels of brain functioning observed in both healthy volunteers and those with brain damage. Among other applications, this research could eventually be used to predict who will recover from a coma.

    Chalmers is great, but what he’s basically questioning the value of research of the kind described in article you posted. He’s saying that neuroscience can’t explain consciousness in any meaningful way.
