The most important information is heavily weighted, while the rest is either totally masked or weighted very lightly. 5 Higher Functions of the Nervous System Pattern Recognition One way of understanding human perception is to study the mechanism of information processing in the brain. The recognition of patterns of sensory input is one of the functions of the brain, a task accomplished by neuronal circuits, the feature extractors. Although such neuronal information is more likely to be processed globally by a large number of neurons, in animals, single-unit recording is one of the most powerful tools in the hands of the physiologist.

The computer calculates the values of the new pattern to be presented on the CRT according to the ALOPEX algorithm, and the process continues until the desired pattern appears on the CRT. At this point, the response is considered to be optimal and the process stops. stimulus the next time it is presented. In a way, then, the brain creates mental “images” (independent of the stimulus) that tend to modify the representation of the stimulus in the brain. This section describes some efforts in which different methods have been used in trying to address the difficult task of feedback loops in the brain.

The rhythmic, pulsatile nature of release of many hormones is a means whereby time-varying signals can be encoded, thus allowing large quantities of information to be transmitted and exchanged rapidly in a way that small, continuous changes in threshold levels would not allow. References Inevitably, our brief exposition has been able to touch upon an enormous subject only by describing some of the salient features of this fascinating domain, but it is hoped that it may nevertheless stimulate a further interest.
