Physical-mathematical models for new paradigms in neuroscience. Part II- An electromagnetic theory of the brain

" The spectral component associated and related to the material, corpuscular one (the neuronal and non-neuronal structures of the brain) must be, at least, as important as the corpuscular part, which is structured and was studied in the last hundred years. ... The analisys of the Toda network with its fractal, but also structural-functional specific allows for modelling the neuronal network, under two components: a structural, corpuscular one and a functional, spectral one."

" Locating consciousness in the brain's EM field, rather than neurons, has the advantage of neatly accounting for how information located in millions of neurons scattered through the brain can be unified into a single consious experience (sometimes called the binding or combination problem: the information is unified in the EM field. In this way, EM field consciousness can be considered to be "joined-up information". This theory accounts for several otherwise puzzling facts, such as the finding that attention and awareness tend to be correlated with synchronous firing of individual neurons. When neurons fire together, their EM fields generate stronger EM field disturbances; so synchronous neuron firing will tend to have a large impact on the brain's EM field (and, thereby, consciousness) than the firing of individual neurons."
