Mind Brain Insights

The human mind remains a mystery. The brain science community — through no fault of their own — is lacking a clear, coherent, and agreed-upon understanding.¬†Although much is known about the...

The current lack of a brain theory, and lack of mind understanding, are closely intertwined. The (conscious and unconscious) mind is poorly-understood. And its connection to the brain is only vaguely...

BCI is widely understood to be unreliable and generally ineffective outside the lab. One obvious reason for this is the brain signal controlling the device is not optimally understood or classified....

Despite significant progress, it’s well-accepted the reliability and overall effectiveness of BCI technology remains limited, especially in the real world. How might an improved understanding of mind, and brain, help solve...

Imagine cognitive neuroscience has progressed to the point where the mind i.e. mental processes could not only be defined, but mapped to the brain — with accuracy and precision. In other...

Neuroimaging is task-based (or resting state), not “mind-based” or “consciousness-based.” The focus on task is a big problem I argue because state of mind is more strongly (and directly) correlated with...

Many neuroscientists think of the human mind as a vague and murky psuedo-phenomenon. The mind (whatever it is, there’s no clear definition) is “processed,” “computed” or “mediated” by the brain. Moment...

What is consciousness? What are mental processes? What is the (conscious and unconscious) mind? And how does it connect to the brain? The mind/brain problem underlies all of the brain sciences....

When people first encounter the MA (Memory Activation) Theory of Mind/Brain, they are often surprised by the terminology. That is, I don’t use any special terms to describe the mind. Of...

This may or may not be true. One factor it depends upon is the topic under investigation. If the topic’s conceptual framework is settled or understood, go with a professional or...
