Neuron Cell types by function in the Entorhinal Cortex Hippocampus system

Here we collect the different types of cells in the human entorhinal cortex (EC) hippocampus system organized by their known functionality. Place Cells – In the hippocampus, they usually fire to a single location in space. Grid Cells Border Ownership cells Head direction Cells – They fire when the head of an organism is facing… Continue reading Neuron Cell types by function in the Entorhinal Cortex Hippocampus system

Global information in the brain? back-propagation vs biological brains

In Artificial neural networks, global information is shared in the synapses via back-propagation. This seems in contrast to biological brains where the neurons only have access to local information via the synapses. We do know that neurons do communicate long range via analog brain waves, but we do not understand enough of those mechanisms and… Continue reading Global information in the brain? back-propagation vs biological brains

Comparing random concepts together

Can we compare any random concepts? Let’s try doing it with two objects. Car Pencil moves (with human intervention) doesn’t move fast slow large small dangerous in multiple ways relatively safe object boxy long large and heavy skinny sort of portable portable solid and stable easily broken mostly metal non-metals How are they similar: man… Continue reading Comparing random concepts together

People who have influenced my thinking on AGI and the mind

There are a lot of great people who continue to influence my thinking about how the mind works. Go read a bunch of their work if you can. Joshua Tenenbaum Scholar profile: https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&user=rRJ9wTJMUB8C Joshua is a powerhouse and continues to do cutting edge research on how to build real AI. He does breadth and depth… Continue reading People who have influenced my thinking on AGI and the mind

Aspects to explore on amodel, amorphous, and abstract models

On the hunt for what is it that makes a model abstract. viewing content from different angles like cameras in a video game adding duck typing to models make every neuron or atom a model in and of its own. voting mechanisms every model used to describe every other model storing the skeleton of models… Continue reading Aspects to explore on amodel, amorphous, and abstract models

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day”

There are so many systems one can learn to study to improve yourself. For many years I spent a lot of my time reading self-help books to continuously improve myself. I found that I would quickly read about some new system and try it out and eventually forget about it or go find some other… Continue reading “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day”
