Unlocking the Brain

Georg Northoff

Now the question arises of how the resting state activity’s self-specific organization impacts subsequent stimulus-induced activity and its manifestation on the phenomenal level of consciousness. The book discusses various findings from studies of emotion, reward, and decision making to show how they are impacted by self-specificity and the midline region’s activity. These findings suggest that self-specificity is indeed central in predisposing the neural activity in the various functions.

Keywords:   self-specificity, self-specific organization, resting state, rest–stimulus interaction, functional connectivity, frequency fluctuations, reward, emotions, integration hypothesis, self-perspectival organization
