Special Session
Brain-Mind Architecture and Learning Mechanisms

Top | Abstract | Organizers

Special Session for IJCNN 2011


This special session will concentrate on recent advances on brain-mind architectures as well as the learning mechanisms that support such architectures.   The issues that are of particular interests to this special session include:

  1. Is the cortex general purpose from the developmental mechanisms point of view
  2. What representations does the brain uses for a wide variety of functions?
  3. Is the brain-mind partitioned by rigid functional modules by the developmental mechanisms?
  4. How can a model of the brain construct a mind?
  5. What are the roles of motor in learning?
  6. Can a brain-like network perform one-shot immediate learning?
  7. How dysfunctions at the neuronal level influence pathological functions of the whole brain (e.g. in epilepsy, pain, dyslexia, autism, Alzheimer's disease,  Parkinson disease, vision loss, hearing loss, ADHD, and drug addiction)?

This special session is co-sponsored by
IEEE CIS Autonomous Mental Development TC and its Visual Processing Task Force
