Multisensory Causal Inference in the Brain

Multisensory Causal Inference in the Brain | Probabilistic reasoning, causal inference and statistics | Scoop.it
How does our brain organize and merge multisensory information? A new study localizes the brain regions underlying sensory fusion and causal inference by combining neuroimaging and computational modelling.

This article is about probability tools. Since probability is such a big part of an actuary's career, we can use this article to see how probability is used and how it applies to actuaries.

Cannabis and psychosis - The Lancet Psychiatry

Cannabis and psychosis - The Lancet Psychiatry | Probabilistic reasoning, causal inference and statistics | Scoop.it

Causal inferences from case–control studies are always hazardous, particularly with poor matching and incomplete specification and imprecise measurement of possible confounds. The unwanted influence of relevant group differences, whether measured or left unmeasured, might only be compounded by brute application of statistical controls. Awareness of the obvious political and policy implications of results, and the likely misuse to which they could be put, apparently failed to discourage the authors from inappropriate causal inferences and ignoring of obvious limitations of their study. This failure can only serve to distract readers from the important message concerning the need for a distinction between higher and lower potency forms of cannabis, even if it should be made with greater precision and in the context of a prospective study.

Fox eBook's curator insight, September 1, 2013 10:26 PM

Paradoxes are poems of science and philosophy that collectively allow us to address broad multidisciplinary issues within a microcosm. A true paradox is a source of creativity and a concise expression that delivers a profound idea and provokes a wild and endless imagination. The study of paradoxes leads to ultimate clarity and, at the same time, indisputably challenges your mind.

Paradoxes in Scientific Inference analyzes paradoxes from many different perspectives: statistics,mathematics, philosophy, science, artificial intelligence, and more. The book elaborates on findings and reaches new and exciting conclusions. It challenges your knowledge, intuition, and conventional wisdom, compelling you to adjust your way of thinking. Ultimately, you will learn effective scientific inference through studying the paradoxes.

Table of Contents

Chapter 1. The Joy of Paradoxes: A Random Walk
Chapter 2. Mathematical and Plausible Reasoning
Chapter 3. Statistical Measures of Scientific Evidence
Chapter 4. Scientific Principles and Inferences
Chapter 5. Artificial Intelligence
Appendix A: Mathematical Notations
