Parma – Si terrà venerdì 8 aprile alle 17 su piattaforma Teams il webinar Neural reuse, dynamics, and constraints: Getting beyond componential mechanistic explanation of neural function organizzato dal Laboratorio Interdipartimentale Neuroscience & Humanities con il Dipartimento di Discipline Umanistiche, Sociali e delle Imprese culturali dell’Università di Parma. Ospite sarà Michael Anderson, della Western University (Canada).

In questo webinar Michael Anderson passerà in rassegna alcune delle prove del riuso neurale - una forma di plasticità neurale per cui le risorse neurali esistenti sono destinate a molti usi diversi - e le utilizzerà per sostenere che dobbiamo andare oltre (anche se non necessariamente abbandonare) la spiegazione meccanicistica componenziale nelle neuroscienze. Si sosterrà che ciò che è necessario per catturare l'intera gamma di plasticità e dinamiche neurali è uno stile di spiegazione basato sulla nozione di vincoli - in particolare vincoli abilitanti. Saranno forniti esempi di fenomeni neurali che sono difficili da spiegare nel quadro meccanicistico, mostrando che sono naturalmente gestiti da vincoli abilitanti.

Michael L. Anderson è Rotman Canada Research Chair in Philosophy of Science al Dipartimento di Filosofia della Western University, Canada.

La ricerca di Michael L. Anderson si trova all'intersezione della psicologia, delle neuroscienze, dell'informatica e della filosofia della scienza cognitiva, ed è apparsa in riviste come Artificial Intelligence, AI Magazine, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Connection Science, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, NeuroImage, The Neuroscientist, Philosophical Psychology, Synthese e Topics in Cognitive Science. Il suo libro più recente After Phrenology: Neural Reuse and the Interactive Brain (MIT Press, 2014) delinea un nuovo quadro per comprendere l'organizzazione funzionale complessiva del cervello, colloca la sua funzione nel contesto evolutivo, e dimostra come i meccanismi originariamente evoluti per il supporto della coordinazione sensomotoria sono stati cooptati per facilitare il linguaggio e la matematica. Anderson è stato un borsista 2012-13 al Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, all'Università di Stanford.

LSNN is an independent editor which relies on reader support. We disclose the reality of the facts, after careful observations of the contents rigorously taken from direct sources, we work in the direction of freedom of expression and for human rights , in an oppressed society that struggles more and more in differentiating. Collecting contributions allows us to continue giving reliable information that takes many hours of work. LSNN is in continuous development and offers its own platform, to give space to authors, who fully exploit its potential. Your help is also needed now more than ever!

In a world, where disinformation is the main strategy, adopted to be able to act sometimes to the detriment of human rights by increasingly reducing freedom of expression , You can make a difference by helping us to keep disclosure alive. This project was born in June 1999 and has become a real mission, which we carry out with dedication and always independently "this is a fact: we have never made use of funds or contributions of any kind, we have always self-financed every single operation and dissemination project ". Give your hard-earned cash to sites or channels that change flags every time the wind blows , LSNN is proof that you don't change flags you were born for! We have seen the birth of realities that die after a few months at most after two years. Those who continue in the nurturing reality of which there is no history, in some way contribute in taking more and more freedom of expression from people who, like You , have decided and want to live in a more ethical world, in which existing is not a right to be conquered, L or it is because you already exist and were born with these rights! The ability to distinguish and decide intelligently is a fact, which allows us to continue . An important fact is the time that «LSNN takes» and it is remarkable! Countless hours in source research and control, development, security, public relations, is the foundation of our basic and day-to-day tasks. We do not schedule releases and publications, everything happens spontaneously and at all hours of the day or night, in the instant in which the single author or whoever writes or curates the contents makes them public. LSNN has made this popular project pure love, in the direction of the right of expression and always on the side of human rights. Thanks, contribute now click here this is the wallet to contribute
