How the brain assigns objects to categories

How the brain assigns objects to categories | Cognitive Science | Scoop.it
The human brain is adept at recognizing similar items and placing them into categories — for example, dog versus cat, or chair versus table. In a new study, MIT neuroscientists have identified the brain activity that appears to control this skill.

Η αναξιοπιστία και η ανακρίβεια του επιστημονικού λόγου πρέπει να θεωρούνται δεδομένες όταν δεν καταφέρνει -ή μάλλον, όταν δεν επιθυμεί- να διαφοροποιηθεί από την κυρίαρχη ιδεολογία και τις κοινωνικές ψευδαισθήσεις της εποχής.

The evolution of the brain, the human nature of cortical circuits, and intellectual creativity

The evolution of the brain, the human nature of cortical circuits, and intellectual creativity | Cognitive Science | Scoop.it
Eleven millennia ago nobody had digital imaging equipment, of course. Yet things have changed less than one might think. Most of the world's great religious centers, past and present, have been destinations for pilgrimages—think of the Vatican, Mecca, Jerusalem, Bodh Gaya (where Buddha was enlightened), or Cahokia (the enormous Native American complex near St. Louis). They are monuments for spiritual travelers, who often came great distances, to gawk at and be stirred by. Göbekli Tepe may be the first of all of them, the beginning of a pattern. What it suggests, at least to the archaeologists working there, is that the human sense of the sacred—and the human love of a good spectacle—may have given rise to civilization itself.

Integral Options Cafe: Is There a Maximum Upper Limit for Cultural Evolution?

Integral Options Cafe: Is There a Maximum Upper Limit for Cultural Evolution? | Cognitive Science | Scoop.it
In AQAL integral theory, there is an unstated assumption (it seems to me) that culture can continue to evolve seemingly without limit. Although Wilber has been clear that there always will be a stratified society, with all levels of development represented, all the talk of evolutionary enlightenment and evolutionary consciousness by various "teachers" and "gurus" seems to neglect this important detail.
