There is now a great burst of optimism that the search is almost over, although the question is now phrased as a search for the neuronal correlates of consciousness, and its answer still stays tantalizingly just out of reach.

Exactly how oscillations do these things never becomes clear. Thus, in a certain sense, one could say that reality is not all “out there,” but is a kind of virtual reality.

Many neuroscientists believe that such synchronised activity in sets of nerve cells is the mechanism that connects or “binds” different sensory inputs into a coherent experience.
