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

Authors conclude that the electromagnetic component in the brain must be at least as important as the corpuscular component, being the first the functional part and the second the structural part.

It explains the advantages of locating consciousness in the brain's electromagnetic field, for example to unite in a simple conscious experience the information processing of millions of neurons scattered through the brain, confronting the "combination problem" that is no more a problem using this approximation.

This paper also explains other problem solving fact, for example that the reason by which attention and awareness tend to be correlated with synchronous firing of individual neurons is because when neurons fire together their EM fields generate stronger EM field disturbances, because of this synchronous neuronal firing has a larger impact on the brain's EM field (consciousness).
