The seat of consciousness

Neurons in the lateral prefrontal cortex represent the content of consciousness. The red trace depicts neural activity (neuronal discharges) in the lateral prefrontal cortex when a stimulus is consciously perceived for 1 second while the green trace depicts neural activity when the same stimulus is suppressed from awareness.

At least two regions of the brain decide what we perceive[more]

Why auditory pitch and spatial elevation get high together

Researchers from Bielefeld University have demonstrated the origin of the mapping between auditory pitch and spatial elevation. Their analysis suggests that the shape of the human ear might have evolved to mirror the acoustic properties of the natural environment. Foto: Parise & Ernst; University of Bielefeld

Researchers uncover why there is a mapping between pitch and elevation.[more]
