Synchronization in the Emergence of Basic Mental Functions

The emergence of conscious experience from distributed neural activity is possibly the most dramatic example of how coordination of elements leads to function. We can depict mental processing as a continuous process of organizing items into functional units. If we accept the assumption that the brain is the source of cognition, consciousness and the mind, we need to identify neural mechanisms that underlie this process—that is the neural underpinnings of functional integration of information.
