The attractor method and some of its applications are presented. We start with the original research question “How to diagnose fatigue (fatigability) in MS patients reliably”. So far a decisive method to discriminate between non-fatiguing and marginal fatiguing...

Retrieving the hemodynamic response function (HRF) in fMRI data is important for several reasons. Apart from its use as a physiological biomarker, HRF can act as a confounder in connectivity studies. In task-based fMRI is relatively straightforward to retrieve...

A common goal in biological sciences is to model a complex web of connections using a small number of interacting units. We present a general approach for dividing up elements in a spatial map based on their connectivity properties, allowing for the discovery of...

Consciousness is simple by definition, and complex by extension. For the first time we may have a look into some of the complexities of Human Consciousness, and how they may have accreted to core consciousness over millenia. From a Core Consciousness that can be...

There is an interface between priming memory and working memory that acts to limit the amount of data in working memory, and also allows priming memory to be actively maintained so that memories stay intact while they are in working memory. This interface converts...

There are two streams of thought about memory that don't seem to jibe with each other, one thought stream works with implicit and explicit memory and one stream works with working memory. The problem is that the theories are not visible each within the other. In...

The Angular Gyrus sits at the point where the Temporal and Parietal Lobes join. It is a point where integrative processes link together the Where and What pathways through the brain and link them to time. It is also the most likely location for at least two centers...

The Extended Consciousness builds on the strengths of the proto conscious and the core consciousness to add a sense of experience onto the basic alertness provided by core consciousness. The Angular Gyrus Model of Consciousness provides some hints as to how the...
