Claustrum, consciousness, and time perception

Article English OPEN
Yin, Bin; Terhune, Devin Blair; Smythies, John; Meck, Warren H;

The claustrum has been proposed as a possible neural candidate for the coordination of conscious experience due to its extensive ‘connectome’. Herein we propose that the claustrum contributes to consciousness by supporting the temporal integration of cortical oscillatio... View more
