There is a really nice and recent review about the current state of research regarding hypnosis, which also cites the resource of another answer here). I will quote here the part about EEG studies but would recommend to read the whole article (if you can't access the article, sci-hub can probably help you). 3.1. The EEG spectrum Historically, the ...

Hamid et al. Mesolimbic dopamine signals the value of work. Nature Neuroscience 2016. http://www.nature.com/neuro/journal/v19/n1/full/nn.4173.html Here is a paper that argues that dopamine signals discounted value of future returns. This is precisely what you are asking. the authors argue, that if rewards are further away in time or space, they are ...

What leaps in technology would be needed to scan the total state of the human brain? Preface In 2016, the "Small Mammal BPF Prize" was won, see: http://www.brainpreservation.org/small-mammal-announcement/. It's the first of two stages of competition for brain preservation (BP) achievements. This competition is doing for BP what XPRIZE is doing for ...

Your question can be reduced to "What level of detail do we need to know about a brain to be able to simulate it?" The answer to this question is that we have no idea and that's a problem. The Blue Brain project has bet on the synaptic level, but they haven't been able to scale that up to behaviour yet. But why stop at the synaptic level? Why not go down to ...

I don't have experience with consumer grade EEG, but at fp1 and fp2 you should be able to measure the P3a response. Given the high impedance you will need a lot of trials, but the response is typically seen at fp1 and fp2 in research. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168559798000331 For the Tp sites they are a bit posterior but you may ...

No, inner speech does not follow the same neural pathway as speech coming in from outside. Rather, inner speech uses the same neural mechanism as outer speech - that is, speech going out. The neural mechanisms of inner speech can be studied using recently developed technologies such as fMRI imaging of subjects instructed to or prevented from engaging in ...
