Abstract

This review paper deals with methodological and technical foundations of the Operational Architectonics framework of brain and mind functioning. This theory provides a framework for mapping and understanding important aspects of the brain mechanisms that constitute perception, cognition, and eventually consciousness. The methods utilized within Operational Architectonics framework allow analyzing with an incredible detail the operational behavior of local neuronal assemblies and their joint activity in the form of unified and metastable operational modules, which constitute the whole hierarchy of brain operations, operations of cognition and phenomenal consciousness.

Keywords: EEG/MEG, operational synchrony, structural synchrony, functional connectivity, neuronal assemblies, brain operations, metastability, mind, temporal structure, binding, perception, cognition, consciousness, dynamical, symbolic, neurocomputational approach, isomorphism.
