Why Great Minds Can't Grasp Consciousness. At a physics meeting last October, Nobel laureate David Gross outlined 25 questions in science that he thought physics might help answer.

Why Great Minds Can't Grasp Consciousness

Nestled among queries about black holes and the nature of dark matter and dark energy were questions that wandered beyond the traditional bounds of physics to venture into areas typically associated with the life sciences. One of the Gross's questions involved human consciousness. He wondered whether scientists would ever be able to measure the onset consciousness in infants and speculated that consciousness might be similar to what physicists call a "phase transition," an abrupt and sudden large-scale transformation resulting from several microscopic changes.

Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity. 1Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA2Dipartimento di Psicologia Generale, Universita di Padova, Padova, Italy3Department of Statistics, University of California at Irvine, Irvine, CA, USA4Samueli Institute, Alexandria, VA, USA5Consciousness Research Laboratory, Institute of Noetic Sciences, Petaluma, CA, USA A recent meta-analysis of experiments from seven independent laboratories (n = 26) indicates that the human body can apparently detect randomly delivered stimuli occurring 1–10 s in the future (Mossbridge et al., 2012).

Computer simulating 13-year-old boy becomes first to pass Turing test. Codebreaker Alan Turing devised a test in 1950, saying that if a machine was indistinguishable from a human, then it was 'thinking'.

Computer simulating 13-year-old boy becomes first to pass Turing test

Photograph: Sherborne School/AFP/Getty Images A "super computer" has duped humans into thinking it was a 13-year-old boy to become the first machine to pass the Turing test, experts have said. Five machines were tested at the Royal Society in central London to see if they could fool people into thinking they were humans during text-based conversations. The test was devised in 1950 by computer science pioneer and second world war codebreaker Alan Turing, who said that if a machine was indistinguishable from a human, then it was "thinking". No computer had ever previously passed the Turing test, which requires 30% of human interrogators to be duped during a series of five-minute keyboard conversations, organisers from the University of Reading said.

The 75-Year Study That Found The Secrets To A Fulfilling Life

It would have to be conducted over the course of many decades, following the lives of real people from childhood until old age, in order to see how they changed and what they learned. And it would probably be too ambitious for anyone to actually undertake. Success Gets into Your Head—and Changes It. Neuroscientists have long understood that the brain can rewire itself in response to experience—a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity.

Success Gets into Your Head—and Changes It

But until recently, they didn’t know what causes gray matter to become plastic, to begin changing. Breakthrough research by a team at MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory has documented one type of environmental feedback that triggers plasticity: success. Equally important and somewhat surprising: Its opposite, failure, has no impact. Earl Miller, the lead researcher on the study (published in the journal Neuron last summer), says understanding the link to environmental feedback is crucial to improving how people teach and motivate because it’s a big part of how we learn.

But we absorb more from success than from failure, according to the study. Search Results - page 1. The Pros & Cons of Empathy: Measuring a Balanced... Tickets. Invalid quantity.

Cognitive Computing Lab. Gilbert Ryle. 1. The Concept of Mind. Ryle's argument[edit] In the chapter "Descartes' Myth," Ryle introduces the term "the dogma of the Ghost in the machine" to describe the philosophical concept of the mind as an entity separate from the body. He argues "I hope to prove that it is entirely false, and false not in detail but in principle.

It allows us to correct motor errors before we have committed them and it allows us to prevent confusion between self- and externally-caused sensory events. Dr Mark Scott. Researchers Harness Brain Game Data. The activities of cognitive training enthusiasts give insight into the effects of lifestyle choices and age on the brain’s performance. FLICKR, HEY PAUL STUDIOSScientists from California’s Lumos Labs, maker of Web-based brain training games, are gathering data from online users to make connections between cognitive performance, lifestyle choices, and aging, according to a paper published last week (June 20) in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.

For tasks testing memory and arithmetic skills—each completed by around 127,000 to 162,000 users who took a lifestyle survey—the researchers found that high performance correlated with drinking one or two alcoholic beverages per day and sleeping around 7 hours a night. The researchers also analyzed data from the subset of users who completed individual tasks at least 25 times, in order to measure the relationship between learning ability and age. Quote of the Day: Justifying Digital Schizophrenia. Digital avatars may help treat schizophrenia. A digital avatar therapy could help treat schizophrenia by controlling the voices patients hear inside their heads while hallucinating, scientists say. The computer-based system being developed at the University College London (UCL) in the UK could provide quick and effective therapy that is far more successful than current pharmaceutical treatments, helping to reduce the frequency and severity of episodes of schizophrenia. In an early pilot of this approach involving 16 patients and up to seven, 30 minute sessions of therapy, almost all of the patients reported an improvement in the frequency and severity of the voices that they hear.
