Parallels between the Tree-Pattern Architecture of Brain and Mind Activity in the UltronLogotron Theory and the Operational Architectonics of Brain-Mind Relation in the Quantitative Electroencephalography Study:A View of Interaction between Self and Brain
The relationship among self, mind and brain is not clearly known. Self's subjective experience of perception and cognition of words, feeling, thoughts etc. is supported by the integrity of human brain. The relationship between the self and human brain activity is not explicitly understood. Recent experimental evidence suggests that the neural correlate of consciousness is located in certain parts of the cortico-thalamic system. However, it is not clearly known specifically which parts of the human brain are involved in the human cognitive activity. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) have been used in the study of normalcy, psychiatric disorders and brain injuries. fMRI and qEEG are applied in diagnosis and clinical drug treatment of psychiatric disorders and brain injuries. In this study, the author analyzed results of published articles related to the above descried fields to find the relationship among self, mind and brain, and proposed the mechanism involved in the self, mind and brain in normalcy, psychiatric disorders and brain injuries, and further the interaction between self and brain. Results of analysis reveal remarkable parallels between the author's tree-pattern architecture of brain and mind activity in the ultron-logotoron theory (ULT) and the operational architectonics (OA) of brain-mind relation in qEEG study reported by Fingelkurts and his coworkers.
