J Gerard Wolff
2004 arXiv   pre-print
This book develops the conjecture that all kinds of information processing in computers and in brains may usefully be understood as "information compression by multiple alignment, unification and search  ...  The theory also provides a basis for the design of an 'SP' computer with several potential advantages compared with traditional digital computers.  ...  By bridging this gap in New, the multiple alignment has, in effect, inferred what questions should have been asked in places where relevant information is missing and what the answers to those questions  ...

S R Quartz, T J Sejnowski
1997 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
According to "neural constructivism," the representational features of cortex are built from the dynamic interaction between neural growth mechanisms and environmentally derived neural activity.  ...  The interaction between the environment and neural growth results in a flexible type of learning: "constructive learning" minimizes the need for prespecification in accordance with recent neurobiological  ...  The major limitation, though, in attempting to infer general timetables of human prefrontal development, is the lack of samples between the ages of 1 to 5 and 8 to 15.  ...
