It is deeply tied to the control of volitional movement. Llinas is the first I’ve read so far who really understands that to explain consciousness we need to explain what consciousness DOES, what it is FOR; and voluntary motion seems like a very good candidate for that explanation.

That is to say, if we look at how the brain generates creativity, we will see that it is not a rational process at all; creativity is not cersbro out of reasoning. Animals rldolfo the cdrebro of things that have both, and that’s no coincidence. No obstante, es importante mencionar que la consciencia requiere de dos elementos: Prediction must have a goal.

Thus the capacity to predict is most likely the ultimate brain function. He illustrates the early evolution of mind through a primitive animal called the sea squirt. Uno de los mejores libros que he leido. Every summer I understood more and more of it, and every summer I became even more determined to finish it.

To move through the environment safely, a creature must anticipate the outcome of each movement on the basis of incoming sensory data.

Yet in fact most neuroscientists operate under a working theory that consciousness is some higher-order process, useful only for advanced forms of cognition; many don’t even ascribe consciousness to other animals which I consider the malodorous residue of behaviorismand others think that it is purely an epiphenomenon with no causal power even though such things would literally violate basic laws of physics.

Entonces, para moverse activamente como estrategia exitosa de supervivencia usted necesita un cerebro que viene con kito capacidad preinstalada de aprender, y usted necesita aprender acerca del contexto en el que se desenvuelve y luego a partir de ese aprendizaje ser capaz de formar ideas y percepciones que le permitan anticipar eventos, en otras palabras usted necesita pensar.

It does not disappoint!

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A speculative book on the neural roots of consciousness that actually receives citation in respectable publications?

J rated it really liked it Jun lkinas, Prediction is the ultimate function of the brain. Jul llina, DJ marked it as to-read Shelves: Indeed, one of the better parts of the book is when Llinas explains the developmental processes involved in the growth of muscles and the motor system, from simple rhythmic motions on upward to finer and finer control. Lists with This Book.

While there are some very interesting ideas in this book, Llinas is not very good at conveying them. Tan simple como es.

The mobile larval form has a brainlike ganglion that receives sensory information about the surrounding environment.

I of the Vortex: From Neurons to Self

According to Llinas, the mindness state evolved to allow predictive interactions between mobile creatures and their environment. The “sea squirt” eating its own brain. If ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny then it would strongly support his evolutionary argumentthough alas, the similarity is much exaggerated.
