Enchanted looms : conscious networks in brains and computers by Rodney Cotterill( )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rodney Cotterill bridges the gap between the bottom-up approach to understanding consciousness, anchored in the brain's biochemistry, anatomy and physiology, and the top-down strategy, which concerns itself with behaviour and the nervous system's interaction with the environment. Equally at home describing the intricacies of neural networks, the methods of monitoring brain activity and relevant aspects of psychology, the author argues that an explanation of consciousness is now at hand, and extends the discussion to include intelligence and creativity. Those who believe that their conscious selves control their bodies will be shocked to learn that even our spur-of-the-moment decisions are made unconsciously - that we are merely captive audiences of our own muscular acts. The remarkable thing is that the underlying deterministic mechanism requires that we be conscious. Evolution's boldest trick greatly increased our competitive edge, by giving the body a conscious servant. The fascinating thing is that this ultimately opened the flood gates of our culture and our technology, including - soon - consciousness in computers

"Assuming little biological or medical knowledge, this book will be invaluable to undergraduate students in physics, biophysics and medical physics. The book will also be useful for graduate students and researchers looking for a broad introduction to the subject."--Jacket
The material world by Rodney Cotterill( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publishers description for "The Material World" by Rodney Cotterill --- Using the cosmos as a backdrop, Rodney Cotterill delivers a fascinating journey of Nature's materials, from the atom to the living organism. This is a beautifully illustrated, expanded account of the highly praised Cambridge Guide to the Material World. The author seamlessly blends the physics, chemistry and biology of Nature, portraying matter with all its elegance and flaws. Although the book is divided into material types, the author connects concepts and pinpoints commonalities between the inorganic and organic domains. It challenges the reader to question our structured view of the world and whether this limits our scientific endeavour, aptly demonstrated by the new chapter devoted exclusively to the mind. Through the breadth of topics and engaging prose, this book will act as a superb introduction to material science for students and those intrigued by the material world we live in. <U+2022> Beautifully illustrated in colour throughout <U+2022> Broad coverage of important classes of materials blending scientific disciplines <U+2022> Written with the non-specialist in mind, numerous analogies and examples to engage the reader
Computer simulation in brain science by D. J Cotterill( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been an enormous increase in research activity aimed at elucidating the basis for cortical activity in the brain. Among modern techniques used in this area of scientific endeavour, few have proved as popular as computer simulation. Model neural networks are the subject of intense study, and some remarkable properties have already come to light: these networks are able to discriminate, remember and associate. Professor Cotterill has assembled leading experts in this burgeoning field to produce an exciting review of advances. The volume covers the creation of computer models of neural networks, and their use in the study of neural function, of cognition, memory and vision. The results and future directions explored here will have an important bearing on research into brain function, physiology, psychology, biophysics and artificial intelligence

Neural network dynamics : proceedings of the Workshop on Complex Neural Networks, June 17-21, 1991 at IIASS, Vietri, Italy by J. G Taylor( )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neural Network Dynamics is the latest volume in the Perspectives in Neural Computing series. It contains papers presented at the 1991 Workshop on Complex Dynamics in Neural Networks, held at IIASS in Vietri, Italy. The workshop encompassed a wide range of topics in which neural networks play a fundamental role, and aimed to bridge the gap between neural computation and computational neuroscience. The papers - which have been updated where necessary to include new results - are divided into four sections, covering the foundations of neural network dynamics, oscillatory neural networks, as well as scientific and biological applications of neural networks. Among the topics discussed are: A general analysis of neural network activity; Descriptions of various network architectures and nodes; Correlated neuronal firing; A theoretical framework for analyzing the behaviour of real and simulated neuronal networks; The structural properties of proteins; Nuclear phenomenology; Resonance searches in high energy physics; The investigation of information storage; Visual cortical architecture; Visual processing. Neural Network Dynamics is the first volume to cover neural networks and computational neuroscience in such detail. Although it is primarily aimed at researchers and postgraduate students in the above disciplines, it will also be of interest to researchers in electrical engineering, medicine, psychology and philosophy
