Neurophilosophy : An overview of corticogenesis

by ogrisel (via)
The winners of the first Kavli Prize were announced a couple of weeks ago. One of the three recipients of the prize for neuroscience was Pasko Rakic, a professor of neurobiology and neurology at the Yale School of Medicine. Rakic has spent most of his career investigating the development of the cerebral cortex of man and other mammals, and it is for his outstanding contribution to this area of research that he has been awarded the Kavli Prize for Neuroscience.

Temporal difference learning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

by ogrisel (via)
Temporal difference learning is a prediction method. It has been mostly used for solving the reinforcement learning problem. "TD learning is a combination of Monte Carlo ideas and dynamic programming (DP) ideas." [2] TD resembles a Monte Carlo method because it learns by sampling the environment according to some policy. TD is related to dynamic programming techniques because it approximates its current estimate based on previously learned estimates (a process known as bootstrapping). The TD learning algorithm is related to the Temporal difference model of animal learning.

Your Brain Boots Up Like a Computer

by YukuanMark & 2 others
As we yawn and open our eyes in the morning, the brain stem sends little puffs of nitric oxide to another part of the brain, the thalamus, which then directs it elsewhere.

Only Using Part of Your Brain? Think Again

by YukuanMark
When ferrets watch the mind-bending movie The Matrix, brain activity is only slightly higher than when they stare at nothing. Scientists say this might mean something about how much of your brain is in use.

Modeling Neural Development

by YukuanMark
This original and timely collection is one of the first books to study neural development using computational and mathematical modeling. Modeling provides precise and exact ways of expression, which allow us to go beyond the insights that intuitive or com

會讀書、考試拿高分的人,不見得頭腦好;不懂得物理原理,不會計算拋物線,卻能把球丟到特定位置的運動好手比較聰明? 博學多聞不等於頭腦好;發現自己喜歡的東西,會非常徹底鑽研的人才是頭腦好? 年紀愈大愈善於用腦,超過三十歲大腦會更靈活;腦細胞不會死掉,反而不斷增加? 活用大腦不是為了「無限地增強記憶力」、「盡快解決問題」,而是為了過快樂有趣的生活? 大腦操縱記憶的部位「海馬體」,人腦中最具可塑性的地方就是這裡。

Bright Air, Brilliant Fire

by YukuanMark
In this challenging, exhilarating leap by a disciplined and original mind, Nobel Prize-winner Edelman (medicine, 1972) throws a neurobiological line between two ships--mind and matter--in the stormiest of scientific seas. In his defense of the biological component of mind, Edelman ( The Remembered Pres ent ) disposes of cognitive and behavioral theories of consciousness. To take up the slack, he extends current developments in brain neuroscience well into speculation. He is far too modest in stating that his goal is "to dispel the notion that the mind can be understood in the absence of biology," for the book is a near-kinetic series of critiques and proposals to connect physics and psychology. The "Harmonies" section draws on other disciplines--philosophy, linguistics and psychiatry, among others--to entwine these tendrils of thought into a "unified theory" of mind.

Numenta is developing a new type of computer memory system modeled after the human neocortex. The applications of this technology are broad and can be applied to solve problems in computer vision, artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning. Th

Memory-prediction framework

by YukuanMark
The memory-prediction framework is a theory of brain function that was created by Jeff Hawkins and described in his book On Intelligence. This theory concerns the role of the hippocampus, neocortex, and the thalamus in matching sensory inputs to stored me

Theoretical Neuroscience - RedwoodCenter

It is often said that "neuroscience is data-rich yet theory-poor." Our aim is to supply useful algorithms and theoretical ideas to neuroscience in order * to provide new forms of analysis for neural data (spike trains, EEG, MRI), * to provide theories and

Brain on chip Nerve tissue interfaced with a computer chip

by YukuanMark
Understanding the function of the hippocampus as an important player in the memory process is a major topic of current brain research. Thin slices of this brain region provide the appropriate material to study the intact neural network of the hippocampus.

This Is Your Brain on Nanotubes

by YukuanMark
Carbon nanotubes -- incredibly strong, electrically conductive, hollow molecules of carbon about a nanometer in diameter -- have for more than a decade been prized by materials scientists. They've added them to batteries to increase their surface area and

Mapping 'self' and 'other' in the brain

HOUSTON -- (May 19, 2006) – Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) have mapped not only where trust forms in the brain but have also uncovered clues as to how humans represent themselves and others as physical responses in their brains. Results

Brains of smart kids develop later - Children's Health -

by YukuanMark
Very smart children may seem advanced in many ways, but a new study shows they actually lag behind other kids in development of the “thinking” part of the brain.
