Sadly, this is an extremely flawed study as are other studies attempting to argue for a brain based etiology for consciousness. yes, correlation can be observed between conscious mind states and brain activity, but correlation is not causation. All these silly scientific reductionist efforts are like trying to study a sunrise by facing west and the proponents of this silliness fail to ask the right questions. It is more worrisome the Study Finds would publish this nonsense… I suggest people read some of the arguments against the brain-consciousness hypotheses by such outstanding neuroscientists as Donald Hoffman at Univ Cal and Iain McGilchrist from Oxford.
This view, that our brains make decisions before we are conscious of them is why I think using the word “consciousness” which in this instance means our attention is not the best word to describe the full phenomenon, and “mind” is a better word. “Awareness and attention” is just one phenomenon managed by mind.
An interesting concept. I hope more research is added to our knowledge base.
Maybe the mind is in some sense our bodies Last Frontier
For something so important to our daily lives, how much does the average citizen know?
Not enough I think.
