  • Cognition is categorization

    We organisms are sensorimotor systems. The things in the world come in contact with our sensory surfaces, and we interact with them based on what that sensorimotor contact “affords”. All of our categories consist in ways we behave differently toward different kinds of things -- things we do or don’t eat, mate-with, or flee-from, or the things that we describe, through our language, as prime numbers, affordances, absolute discriminables, or truths. That is all that cognition is for, and about....

    Helmholtz's Piano Strings: Reverberation of Ripples on the Tectorial Membrane

    In 1857 Helmholtz proposed that the ear contained an array of sympathetic resonators, like piano strings, which served to give the ear its fine frequency discrimination. Since the discovery that most healthy human ears emit faint, pure tones (spontaneous otoacoustic emissions), it has been possible to view these narrowband signals as the continuous ringing of the resonant elements. But what are the elements? It is noteworhty that motile outer hair cells lie in a precise crystal-like array wit...

    Computation vs. Information Processing: Why Their Difference Matters to Cognitive Science

    Since the cognitive revolution, it’s become commonplace that cognition involves both computation and information processing. Is this one claim or two? Is computation the same as information processing? The two terms are often used interchangeably, but this usage masks important differences. In this paper, we distinguish information processing from computation and examine some of their mutual relations, shedding light on the role each can play in a theory of cognition. We recommend that theori...

    Know-how Behavers, and Negative Choice Value in Competitive Situation

    Abstract1 The purpose of the research was to find out: How does know- how behavior link with a negative choice value of persons in a competitive situation, and which background factors are responsible for behavioral dynamic. It was assumed that the joint background regulates the know-how of the behavers. When the know-how of the behavers gains in the process, then other behavers arouse a negative choice value toward the achievers, and oust them. The number ...

    Revisiting the Concept of Identifiable Neurons

    Although eutely in nematodes was known, giant neurons in several taxa and unique motor neurons to leg muscles in decapod crustaceans, the idea that many animals have many identifiable neurons with relatively consistent dynamical properties and connections was only slowly established in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This has to be one of the important quiet revolutions in neurobiology. It stimulated a vast acquisition of specific information and led to some euphoria in the degree and pace of...
