Brain Mechanisms for the Integration of Posture and Movement (Progress in Brain Research)

Brain Mechanisms for the Integration of Posture and Movement (Progress in Brain Research)

This volume of Progress in Brain Research is dedicated to the Scientific mentors of Shigemi Mori: Bunichi Fujimori (1910-86), John Brookhart (1913-85), and Victor Gurfinkel (1922-present). It describes the current state of knowledge on the role of parallel and distributed neuronal Systems in the integration of posture and movement. The charge to the authors of the various chapters was twofold: to provide a conceptual overview of the topic that could serve as a balanced Reference text for the next generation of movement neuroscientists; and, to stimulate further experimental and theoretical Work in the field. Key Issues are addressed in ten interrelated sections: perspectives on the overall issues; three aspects of brainstem-spinal cord interactions (developmental and comparative; motoneuron properties, pattern generation, and sensory feedback; adaptive mechanisms); biomechanical and imaging approaches; descending command issues; supraspinal sensorimotor interactions; cerebellar interactions and control mechanisms; eye-head-neck coordination; and, higher control from the basal ganglia, sensorimotor cortex, and frontal lobe. Relevant chapters are cross-referenced, but no attempt has been made to adjudicate current disparities between the authors' results and their interpretations. These differences bring out the lively state of current Work in the aspects of movement Neuroscience addressed in this volume.

A Practical Logic of Cognitive Systems: The Reach of Abduction: Insight and Trial: 2

A Practical Logic of Cognitive Systems: The Reach of Abduction: Insight and Trial: 2

The present Work is a continuation of the authors' acclaimed multi-volume A
Practical Logic of Cognitive Systems. After having investigated the notion of
relevance in their previous volume, Gabbay and Woods now turn to abduction. In
this highly original approach, abduction is construed as ignorance-preserving
inference, in which conjecture Plays a pivotal role. Abduction is a response to a
cognitive target that cannot be hit on the basis of what the agent currently knows.
The abducer selects a hypothesis which were it true would enable the reasoner to attain his target. He concludes from this fact that the hypothesis may be conjectured. In allowing conjecture to stand in for the knowledge he fails to have, the abducer reveals himself to be a satisficer, since an abductive solution is not a solution from knowledge. Key to the authors' analysis is the requirement that a conjectured proposition is not just what a reasoner might allow himself to assume, but a proposition he must defeasibly release as a premiss for further inferences in the domain of enquiry in which the original abduction problem has arisen.



The coverage of the book is extensive, from the Philosophy of Science to
computer Science and AI, from diagnostics to the law, from Historical explanation to linguistic interpretation. One of the volume's strongest contributions is its exploration of the abductive character of criminal trials, with special attention given to the standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt.



Underlying their analysis of abductive reasoning is the authors' conception of
practical agency. In this approach, practical agency is dominantly a matter of the
comparative modesty of an agent's cognitive agendas, together with comparatively scant Resources available for their advancement. Seen in these ways, abduction has a significantly practical character, precisely because it is a form of inference that satisfices rather than maximizes its response to the agent's cognitive target.



The Reach of Abduction will be necessary reading for researchers, graduate
students and senior undergraduates in logic, computer science, AI, belief dynamics, argumentation theory, cognitive Psychology and neuroscience, linguistics, forensic science, legal reasoning and related areas.



Key features:



- Reach of Abduction is fully integrated with a background Logic of cognitive systems.

- The most extensive coverage compared to competitive works.

- Demonstrates not only that abduction is a form of ignorance preserving
inference but that it is a mode of inference that is wholly rational.

- Demonstrates the satisficing rather than maximizing character of
abduction.

- The development of formal Models of abduction is considerably more extensive than one finds in existing literature. It is an especially impressive amalgam of sophisticated
conceptual analysis and extensive logical modelling.

Neuromimetic Semantics: Coordination, quantification, and collective predicates

Neuromimetic Semantics: Coordination, quantification, and collective predicates

This book attempts to marry truth-conditional semantics with cognitive Linguistics in the church of computational neuroscience. To this end, it examines the truth-conditional meanings of coordinators, quantifiers, and collective predicates as neurophysiological phenomena that are amenable to a neurocomputational analysis. Drawing inspiration from Work on visual processing, and especially the simple/complex cell distinction in early vision (V1), we claim that a similar two-layer Architecture is sufficient to learn the truth-conditional meanings of the logical coordinators and logical quantifiers.
As a prerequisite, much discussion is given over to what a neurologically plausible representation of the meanings of these items would look like. We eventually settle on a representation in terms of correlation, so that, for instance, the semantic input to the universal operators (e.g. and, all)is represented as maximally correlated, while the semantic input to the universal negative operators (e.g. nor, no)is represented as maximally anticorrelated. On the basis this representation, the hypothesis can be offered that the function of the logical operators is to extract an invariant feature from natural situations, that of degree of correlation between parts of the situation. This result sets up an elegant formal analogy to recent Models of visual processing, which argue that the function of early vision is to reduce the redundancy inherent in natural images.
Computational simulations are designed in which the logical operators are learned by associating their phonological form with some degree of correlation in the inputs, so that the overall function of the system is as a simple kind of pattern recognition. Several learning rules are assayed, especially those of the Hebbian sort, which are the ones with the most neurological support. Learning vector quantization (LVQ) is shown to be a perspicuous and efficient means of learning the patterns that are of interest. We draw a formal parallelism between the initial, competitive layer of LVQ and the simple cell layer in V1, and between the final, linear layer of LVQ and the complex cell layer in V1, in that the initial layers are both selective, while the final layers both generalize.
It is also shown how the representations argued for can be used to draw the traditionally-recognized inferences arising from coordination and quantification, and why the inference of subalternacy breaks down for collective predicates.
Finally, the analogies between early vision and the logical operators allow us to advance the claim of cognitive Linguistics that language is not processed by proprietary algorithms, but rather by Algorithms that are General to the entire brain. Thus in the debate between objectivist and experiential metaphysics, this book falls squarely into the camp of the latter. Yet it does so by means of a rigorous formal, mathematical, and neurological exposition – in contradiction of the experiential claim that formal analysis has no place in the understanding of cognition. To make our own counter-claim as explicit as possible, we present a sketch of the LVQ structure in terms of mereotopology, in which the initial layer of the network performs topological operations, while the final layer performs mereological operations.
The book is meant to be self-contained, in the sense that it does not assume any prior knowledge of any of the many areas that are touched upon. It therefore contains mini-summaries of biological visual processing, especially the retinocortical and ventral /what?/ parvocellular pathways; computational Models of neural signaling, and in particular the reduction of the Hodgkin-Huxley equations to the connectionist and integrate-and-fire neurons; Hebbian learning rules and the elaboration of learning vector quantization; the linguistic pathway in the left hemisphere; Memory and the hippocampus; truth-conditional vs. image-schematic semantics; objectivist vs. experiential metaphysics; and mereotopology. All of the simulations are implemented in MATLAB, and the code is available from the book’s website.

· The discovery of several algorithmic similarities between visison and semantics.
· The support of all of this by means of simulations, and the packaging of all of this in a coherent theoretical framework.

The Law and Ethics of the Pharmaceutical Industry

The Law and Ethics of the Pharmaceutical Industry

As one of the most massive and successful Business sectors, the pharmaceutical industry is a potent force for good in the community, yet its behaviour is frequently questioned: could it serve Society at large better than it has done in the recent past? Its own internal ethics, both in Business and science, may need a careful reappraisal, as may the extent to which the Law - administrative, civil and criminal - succeeds in guiding (and where neccessary contraining) it.

The rules of behavior that may be considered to apply to today's pharmaceutical industry have emerged over a very long period and the process goes on. Even the immensely detailed Standards for quality, Safety and efficacy laid down in drug Law and regulation during the second half of the twentieth century have their limitations as Tools for ensuring that the public Interest is well served. In particular, national and Regional regulatory agencies are heavily dependent on industrial data for their decision-making, their Standards and competence vary, and even the existing network of agencies does not cover the entire world. What is more there are many areas of Law and regulation affecting the industry, concerning for example the pricing of medicines, the conduct of Clinical studies, the Health protection of workers and concern for the environment. In some fields it is indeed hardly possible to maintain Standards through regulation.

Professor N.M. Graham Dukes, a physician and lawyer with long term experience in industrial Research management, academic study and international drug policy, provides here a powerfully documented analysis into the way this industry thinks, acts, and is viewed, and examines the current trends pointing to change.
