The parallel brain: the cognitive neuroscience of the corpus callosum

Hemispheric specialization is excited about each point of sensory, cognitive, and motor structures integration. examine of the corpus callosum, the bands of tissue uniting the brain's hemispheres, is significant to realizing neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and behaviour. It additionally brings the instruments of hemispheric specialization to a primary challenge of cognitive neuroscience: modularity and intermodular verbal exchange.

Keeping Mozart in Mind, 2nd Edition

The call for for math and technology talents in our technology-driven global is at a top class, and but U.

30 ● 1 SELF-ORGANIZATION IN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM Arguably, perhaps the only system of many interacting elements that has been characterized in detail is the artificial neural network. There must be a parallel, so far unexploited, between neural networks and subcellular networks. Crossing the levels Quite often, testing a postulated mechanism requires observation of phenomena at one level and the identification of mechanism at lower levels. More links between levels are required to achieve this. For example, there is still no solid evidence linking the nature of the nerve connections making up the topographically ordered maps and the underlying molecular mechanisms.

The subcellular level Although we now have at our disposal several completely sequenced genomes, we are still for the most part remarkably ignorant about how genes interact and regulate each other to develop the nervous system. A plausible picture of cellular regulation would involve networks of multiple interactions, with feedback between all layers. There is great scope for exploiting the parallels between maps of metabolic pathways and those of gene expression, both of which involve processes of global control by self-organization.

In addition, newly developed imaging techniques can be applied that enable visualization of nervous system activity at the subsynaptic, synaptic and cellular and network levels. 2 Inspiration for Other Sciences – ‘Cognitive Systems’ Replication or inspiration? Whereas living and artificial systems are made out of the same basic set of elements, namely atoms, clearly their structures are different – silicon chips are different from pieces of brain. The nature of the substrate constrains the properties of the system.
