I wonder how stable the brain is as a dynamical system. In other words, how important the state (current activation) of the brain is for its further functioning. Would the brain recover from a state ...
Background I'm in high school currently conducting research (obviously it is relatively rudimentary compared to what is being done in the labs, etc.) in computational neuroscience. I'm dealing with ...
I'm trying to categorize Kurt Lewin's work, specifically his force field model and his three-step model of change. From what I read, he was strongly influenced by the Gestaltists and he's considered ...
What examples of attempts to formalize a principled physical basis for consciousness and/or a general theory of the mind exist? I read a fascinating ArXiV preprint last year called Consciousness as a ...
I am currently working with Spiking Neural Networks and multi-(meta)-stable attractor states. What I observe in my simulations are 'bump' attractors that appear, disappear, and may wander around. ...
In the Wikipedia article for Computational Theory of the Mind (NOT to be confused with Computational Representational Understanding of Mind which includes Connectionism), it is mentioned that ...
