Cognitive Regime Shift I - When the Brain Breaks/GeorgeMashour
From Complex Time
Notes by user George Mashour (Univ. Michigan) for Cognitive Regime Shift I - When the Brain Breaks
1+ paragraphs on any combination of the following:
- Presentation highlights
- Open questions that came up
- How your perspective changed
- Impact on your own work
- e.g. the discussion on [A] that we are having reminds me of [B] conference/[C] initiative/[D] funding call-for-proposal/[E] research group
The meeting was illuminating in a number of regards. In addition to the new content knowledge, the framework of emergence/causality/time/complexity was of great interest and utility. In terms of specific knowledge that will inform my future work, the limitations of DTI as a metric for human structural connectivity was important to learn. Also, the lecture on critical dynamics was- in my opinion- important in linking scales from neuronal spike activity to large scale networks. Criticalitycan potentiallyfunction as a surrogate for optimal "health" in the system and distance from criticality can potentially function as a surrogate for "disease."
