Through various studies, different researchers have come up with theories regarding consciousness. A night’s rest can be the perfect example of losing consciousness, and when we awaken, we obtain consciousness again. Consciousness is a mysterious study, and psychologists have built models to help understand how consciousness emerges from our brains.   Originally, this study is based on belief that the gathering together of neurons across the brain will enable consciousness. It was believed in the recent decades that when this occurs, it allows the brain to bring together different awareness’s into a single conscious experience.

Dr. Giulio Tononi was a doctor who studied consciousness by becoming a psychiatrist. He developed a very different theory about consciousness. He believes that if synchronization were the key to consciousness, you would expect the seizures to make people hyperconscious (more conscious than normally) instead of unconscious, due to their brain waves becoming more synchronized. If his theory is correct, then he wishes to build a “conscious meter”, which should measure consciousness as easy as measuring blood pressure. Dr Giulio stated that when you are dealing with consciousness, if you don’t have a theory, you will have no chance of being able to state anything meaningful.
