Abstract

This paper presents an analysis of the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) from the perspective of the Informational Model of Consciousness (IMC), which defines seven main informational components of the Informational System of the Human Body (ISHB), appearing as a bipolar info-material structure: Centre of Acquisition and Storing of Information (CASI) (projected in consciousness as Iknow - memory), Centre of Decision and Command (CDC) (Iwant - decision), Info-Emotional System (IES) (Ilove - emotions), Maintenance Informational System (MIS) (Iam - personal status), Genetic Transmission System (GTS) (Icreate - reproduction), Info- Genetic Generator (IGG) (Icreated - inherited genetic information), and Info-Connection (IC) (Ibelieve - trust, info-selection). After a presentation of the brain connected areas, a special attention is focused on ACC, as the representative area of IC, showing that imagistic and electrophysiological negative signals, defined as error-related negativity (ERN), indicates to be involved in the error detection and conflict monitoring of the data, with the contribution of the prefrontal control area of the cortex. Two main lines of experiments were analysed: (1) one of them highlighting the implication of ACC in individual error-detection data, with relevance in exhibiting the individual specificity and general features concerning the degree of academic performances, the human need of trust and confidence (particularly promoted by religion), the intervention in regulation of the emotional states and empathy, and the relation with the cognitive and affective disorders (anxiety, depression); (2) another line including aggressive impulses and acquired/inherited traits in children, men and woman. The main results of the analysis in terms of IMC could be synthetically summarised as following: (i) the observed functions of ACC fit well the earlier defined properties of Ibelieve, dedicated to administrate the certainty/uncertainty Yes/ No balance (actually information), organising the info-processing with respect to survival and self-control necessities; (ii) IMC, as a cognitive model of consciousness, could help an efficient evaluation of the individual traits (particularly in trait anxiety), the patient co-participation/implication in the cognitive or similar therapies, and a suitable evaluation of the recovery improvement; (iii) the training of Ibelieve oriented to positive information (Iknow) and emo-states (Ilove), pro-life and emphatic social relations, optimistic and confidence aspirations, deeply contributes to a stable equilibrium and health state (Iam); (iv) as the epigenetic inherited/ acquired traits are actually based on learning informationally-assisted processes, a mind-controlled substitution of inconvenient traits with new beneficial ones, would help the prevention/recovery of the reversible disorders.
