Resting-State Activity and Prephenomenal Unity

Resting-State Activity and Prephenomenal Unity

(p.122) (p.123) Chapter 18 Resting-State Activity and Prephenomenal Unity
Unlocking the Brain

Georg Northoff

Oxford University Press

The book proposes the duration of the resting state’s temporal unity to predispose the possible degree of phenomenal features, like “nonstructural homogeneity” and “wholeness,” that signify the phenomenal unity in consciousness. The same holds for the resting state’s spatial unity, which can be associated with its functional connectivity pattern. Based on these considerations, the book proposes a “resting state–based hypothesis of prephenomenal unity.” The resting state–based hypothesis of prephenomenal unity proposes that the brain’s resting state activity is characterized by a prephenomenal unity. Such prephenomenal unity consists of spatial and temporal unity of the resting state’s neuronal activity as based on its coupling of fluctuations from different frequency ranges, and functional connectivity spanning across different regions.

Keywords:   entrainment of high frequencies by low frequencies, prephenomenal unity, phenomenal unity, resting state, stimulus-induced activity, spatial unity, temporal unity, functional connectivity, phase synchronization, wholeness, nonstructural homogeneity, resting state–based hypothesis of prephenomenal unity
