Chris Ryan Posted almost 3 years ago Can a map of the Brain really explain the complexities of consciousness? No. mapping the brain may account for where we store certain types of information, however it is the unique information stored and how you interface that information with other bits of information that comes together to demonstrate consciousness. A piece of your brain might store numbers, but the difference between that number being a 2 or 4 is the decisive factor in consciousness. However if a large group of "4" type people are studied, you might be able to draw certain conclusions about how that type of person might react in a given situation.
