From Rockstroh et al. (1993). 05). Of the 25 patients, 17 achieved significant SCP differentiation under at least one condition (feedback or transfer); 9 of the 17 demonstrated significant transfer. Figure 3 illustrates the increase in SCP differentiation under feedback conditions across sessions, which turned out to be the most pronounced during the second training period, from sessions 21 to 28. ' and "B" states as they did at home, while the EEG was monitored. This testing was realized in an office in which the patient had never been, in order to avoid possible effects of conditioning to experimental context.

Since science has shown that our perception does not reflect reality, and that our sensual experience never leads to certainty, philosophers have tried to find a pure consciousness that cannot be doubted. Descartes found this certainty in thinking-the cogito me cogitare, ergo sum. That is an inner experience for which we need no senses that normally assure us of reality. Kant, too, saw the last certainty in the thinking ego. For Schopenhauer, on the other hand, certainty is not a cognitive activity, but the bodybounded feeling for the fact that one is alive.

Within each session, an initial block of 20 transfer trials was followed by two blocks of 30 feedback trials each, while the session terminated with another 30 transfer trials. ' and "B" trials alternated pseudorandomly. Training sessions were held for 2 weeks (two 1-hr sessions per day with a 2-day break separating each training week).
