A neural cognitive architecture

 It is difficult to study the mind, but cognitive architectures are one tool. As the mind emerges from the behaviour of the brain, neuropsychological methods are another method to study the mind, though a rather indirect method. A cognitive architecture that is implemented in spiking neurons is a method of studying the mind that can use neuropsychological evidence directly.

The role of inter- and intracultural mental variations

The concept of mentality in actual research is revealed. The importance of the category of analytic-holistic thinking is emphasized (including its manifestations at the inter- and intracultural level). The articles are analyzed, which describe the brain support of behavior in mental variations, including those related to various types of activity and forms of social interaction. The results are interpreted from the standpoint of a systemic evolutionary approach. The evolutionary aspect of the existence of intra- and intercultural variations is discussed.

 

Functional connectivity of the orbitofrontal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, and inferior frontal gyrus in humans

"Parcellation of the orbitofrontal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, and inferior frontal gyrus based on their functional connectivity with the whole brain in resting state fMRI with 654 participants was performed to investigate how these regions with different functions in reward, emotion and their disorders are functionally connected to each other and to the whole brain.

Building machines that think and learn like people

Recent progress in artificial intelligence (AI) has renewed interest in building systems that learn and think like people. Many advances have come from using deep neural networks trained end-to-end in tasks such as object recognition, video games, and board games, achieving performance that equals or even beats humans in some respects. Despite their biological inspiration and performance achievements, these systems differ from human intelligence in crucial ways.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see

People frequently interpret the same information differently, based on their prior beliefs and views. This may occur in everyday settings, as when two friends are watching the same movie, but also in more consequential circumstances, such as when people interpret the same news differently based on their political views. The role of subjective knowledge in altering how the brain processes narratives has been explored mainly in controlled settings.
