ePub Dynamic Coordination in the Brain ePub

by Christoph Von Der Malsburg

A fundamental shift is occurring in neuroscience and related disciplines.In the past, researchers focused on functional specialization of the brain, discovering complex processing strategies based on convergence and divergence inslowly adapting anatomical architectures. Yet for the brain to cope withever-changing and unpredictable circumstances, it needs strategies with richerinteractive short-term dynamics. Recent research has revealed ways in which thebrain effectively coordinates widely distributed and specialized activities to meetthe needs of the moment. This book explores these findings, examining the functions, mechanisms, and manifestations of distributed dynamical coordination in the brainand mind across different species and levels of organization. The book identifiesthree basic functions of dynamic coordination: contextual disambiguation, dynamicgrouping, and dynamic routing. It considers the role of dynamic coordination intemporally structured activity and explores these issues at different levels, fromsynaptic and local circuit mechanisms to macroscopic system dynamics, emphasizingtheir importance for cognition, behavior, and psychopathology.ContributorsEvanBalaban, Gy?rgy Buzs?ki, Nicola S.
