'Engine of consciousness' found in macaques


Recommended Posts


But that doesn't mean they've found the seat of consciousness in the brain.

"It is unlikely that consciousness is specific to one location in the brain," said Michelle Redinbaugh, a graduate student in psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and lead author of the paper, published Feb. 12 in the journal Neuron.

Past research has already shown that staying conscious involves activity spread across the whole brain, but her team's work demonstrates that the central lateral thalamus likely plays a key role, she said.
