How Does a Brain Build a Cognitive Code?

  • Stephen Grossberg
Part of the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science book series (BSPS, volume 70)

Abstract

This article provides a self-contained introduction to my work from a recent perspective. A thought experiment is offered which analyses how a system as a whole can correct errors of hypothesis testing in a fluctuating environment when none of the system’s components, taken in isolation, even knows that an error has occurred. This theme is of general philosophical interest: How can intelligence or knowledge be ascribed to a system as a whole but not to its parts? How can an organism’s adaptive mechanisms be stable enough to resist environmental fluctuations which do not alter its behavioral success, but plastic enough to rapidly change in response to environmental demands that do alter its behavioral success? To answer such questions, we must identify the functional level on which a system’s behavioral success is defined.
