by Ben Best This essay was originally part of the series "The Anatomical Basis of Mind", available on this website as The Anatomical Basis of Mind (Neurophysiology & Consciousness). The purpose of that series was to learn & explain what is known about how neurophysiology results in the phenomena of mind&self. Further, to understand which brain/neuronal structures must be preserved to preserve mind&self. And still further, to be able to use that knowledge to suggest & evaluate cryonics and other preservation methods. This installment addresses the subject of computer-models of neural networks and the relevance of those models to the functioning brain.
Many concepts related to the neural networks methodology are best explained if they are illustrated with applications of a specific neural network program.
