In the newly published opinion paper in the Journal of Integrative Neuroscience, researchers from BM-Science argue that  establishing the potential (actual physical possibility) of Selfhood in patients  with disorders of consciousness is crucialy important from clinical, ethical, and moral standpoints.

This is so, because Selfhood is the most central and private evidence of being an independent and free agent that unites intention, embodiment, executive functions, attention, general intelligence, emotions and other components within the intra-subjective frame (first-person givenness). The importance of Selfhood is supported further by the observation that rebooting of self-awareness is the first step to recovery after brain damage. It seems that complex experiential Selfhood can be plausibly conceptualized within the Operational Architectonics (OA) of brain-mind functioning and reliably measured by quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG) operational synchrony.
