How the brain produces consciousness in “time slices”

How the brain produces consciousness in “time slices” | Conscience et champ - Field and consciousness | Scoop.it

EPFL scientists propose a new way of understanding of how the brain processes unconscious information into our consciousness. According to the model, consciousness arises only in time intervals of up to 400 milliseconds, with gaps of unconsciousness in between. The driver ahead suddenly stops, and you find yourself stomping on your breaks before you even realize what is going on. We would call this a reflex, but the underlying reality is much more complex, forming a debate that goes back centuries: Is consciousness a constant, uninterrupted stream or a series of discrete bits – like the 24 frames-per-second of a movie reel? Scientists from EPFL and the universities of Ulm and Zurich, now put forward a new model of how the brain processes unconscious information, suggesting that consciousness arises only in intervals up to 400 milliseconds, with no consciousness in between. The work is published in PLoS Biology.

 

Consciousness seems to work as continuous stream: one image or sound or smell or touch smoothly follows the other, providing us with a continuous image of the world around us. As far as we are concerned, it seems that sensory information is continuously translated into conscious perception: we see objects move smoothly, we hear sounds continuously, and we smell and feel without interruption. However, another school of thought argues that our brain collects sensory information only at discrete time-points, like a camera taking snapshots. Even though there is a growing body of evidence against “continuous” consciousness, it also looks like that the “discrete” theory of snapshots is too simple to be true.

 

Michael Herzog at EPFL, working with Frank Scharnowski at the University of Zurich, have now developed a new paradigm, or “conceptual framework”, of how consciousness might actually work. They did this by reviewing data from previously published psychological and behavioral experiments that aim to determine if consciousness is continuous or discrete. Such experiments can involve showing a person two images in rapid succession and asking them to distinguish between them while monitoring their brain activity.

 

The new model proposes a two-stage processing of information. First comes the unconscious stage: The brain processes specific features of objects, e.g. color or shape, and analyzes them quasi-continuously and unconsciously with a very high time-resolution. However, the model suggests that there is no perception of time during this unconscious processing. Even time features, such as duration or color change, are not perceived during this period. Instead, the brain represents its duration as a kind of “number”, just as it does for color and shape.

 

Then comes the conscious stage: Unconscious processing is completed, and the brain simultaneously renders all the features conscious. This produces the final “picture”, which the brain finally presents to our consciousness, making us aware of the stimulus.

Well, the title does not describe the content: the text says how the brain processes information, not how it "produces" consciousness

Consciousness and the Quantum: Surprising New Evidence

Consciousness and the Quantum: Surprising New Evidence | Conscience et champ - Field and consciousness | Scoop.it
Since it began in 1994, the Science of Consciousness conference in Tucson AZ, has become the world’s largest consciousness-focused conference. Founded by philosopher David Chalmers and anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff, its popularity and prestige reflects the growing academic recognition of the mystery presented by the conscious mind. Among the diverse views of its attendees and speakers, there is a decidedly growing openness toward deeper views of the mind. For many, including its founders, the question of consciousness may even penetrate to the heart of our scientific ontology. In recent years, scientists exploring the controversial terrain of psychic anomalies, like precognition and mind-matter interaction, have become a growing part of the discussion. This year IONS chief scientist Dean Radin gave a fascinating talk detailing the surprising findings of his prize-winning experiments exploring the relationship between mind and the quantum world. This one’s not to be missed.
