This is very poorly understood and depends on how you define consciousness.

Most basic question you'll probably get and I don't even know if it has anything to do with neuroscience....I get headaches 4-5 times a week. What could be some of the reasons why this happens?
from my understanding its lack of water..try drinking more water daily..morning noon and night..how much do you drink? ( water not liquids)

you say injesting hallucinogens are "never helpful" for the brain.
i never tried mushrooms.

but give me one good reason why i should stop smoking pot.

i squeeze time, money, and motivation to smoke this herb. i wouldn't say it's addicting, but it's habit,
or a hobby
i'm just looking for one good reason to quit.. and only use it for big days.

neuroscience is still in its infancy, crawling and not even started to walk yet. There is no answer to the question, where does conciousness come from? I think the main focus of neuroscience should be on the pineal gland and dmt!

I've learned epilepsy originates in the hippocampus, where all the memories are stored. I forgot the dudes name but they straight up took out his hippocampus because he had such severe epilepsy. He no longer had siezures but he had no long term memory. If this is the case and epilepsy is a learned response, then can it be unlearned? Can you mentally learn a different response? Perhaps there are cognative ways to go about treatment. I have some friends who are epileptics ranging from moderate to severe and all the Drs do is put them on meds. Some work, some dont. Right now it seems like drs are throwing a blanket over the problem, rather than actually fixing the furnace.

how do i unlock the third eye ?
you can unlock it by simply by meditating by focusing on it or if you are already a marijuana smoker (not promoting you to smoke)...you might want to know that a hormone/receptor called the delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol is connected to the receptor that's within our bodies. delta (greek word) which means 4 comes from the hebrew word Dalit. Dalit means, "door or pathway". thc opens that receptor to enter that "pathway". this is the reason why you would notice that marijuana smokers have more creative energy or feel like they have or say they astral projected and so fourth.

I was definitely in a meditative state ( on a sativa strand i think) the night I felt the top of my head vibrate ( crown chakra? )

you know what he means by 'cousciousness" .. the thing that makes us what we are and since you say this is poorly understood, does that mean the man knows very little about himself in terms of his mental origins?

I think it may have evolved along with the rest of the carbon based life on this planet? Plausibly speaking, a theory I heard, diet and genetic mutations that results from it, coupled with the evolutionary time lapse from 'then' to 'now' to stabilize said mutations? Makes sense I suppose . The most unbiased thing I've heard or entertained mentally about this

I smoke weed all the time. It's not helpful but it isn't harmful either.

i think that they fail to experiment with the actual pineal glands in lab rats because they arent quite replicated especially when since besides clinical studies are the only ones who observe humans and prescribing to ward patients and lab tests are only lab rats.

some fear the almighty pineal gland
False.

what natural neurons are used to induce mental illness.
why by binding neuro transmitters do we mask these problems yet not know the actual cause?


what vitamin defincenys contribute to mental illness?
Your first two questions dont make any sense. And I'm not a psychiatrist. Stop lumping the two together.

The guy's name was Henry Molaison. Epilepsy is due to hyper-excitiability in the temporal lobe, which contains the hippocampus. And you've got it backwards. He had no short-term memory. He couldn't develop new memories. This is because memories are produced within the tri-synaptic circuit in the hippocampus and then stored in the a.ssociative cortices. So with no hippocampus, no new memories.

Epilepsy is not a learned response.

Do neuroscientist touch on the subject of dreams? Secondly, what you think about the law of attraction?

Main reason I ask about the subject is to whether see how powerful the brain is, since philosophically, only our own mind exist and through perception we see "reality", but if the brain is powerful enough to alter the reality of which we perceive things. I know this is touching philosophy more than neuroscience but I would like to get your opinion on it. Such as a "thought", what is a thought, does it really exist, can we cumulatively measure it or explain consciousnesses as one mentioned earlier. It just makes me wonder of how powerful the brain can be.
