The predictive mind [Elektronisk resurs]

Author: Jakob Hohwy
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Document   Computer File : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Jakob Hohwy explores a new theory in neuroscience: the idea that the brain is essentially a hypothesis-testing mechanism that attempts to minimise the error of its predictions about sensory input. He explains the rich and multifaceted character of our conscious perception, and argues that the mind has a fragile indirect relation to the world.
