Neural Theories of Mind synopsis
In this wonderful book, William R. The possibility that, however much we learn a lot about anatomy, physiology in the brain, and psychology, we may never be able to cross the final bridge explaining how the brain is produced by the mind.
Three main categories of mind and brain theory are considered and rejected: field theories, as they are based on a superficial analogy; Single-cell theories, as they emerge from a massive uncontrolled pilot program; And theories of the neural network, because they are bound by an integrative complexity, and to support his argument, Ottal explores the experimental and conceptual foundations of these theoretical approaches and identifies defects in their basic logic. The author concludes that the problems that prevent solving the brain-brain problem are intractable, but they are good within the limits of the natural sciences..
