2015 Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience  
Current models in biological psychiatry focus on a handful of model species, and the majority of work relies on data generated in rodents.  ...  However, in the same sense that a comparative approach to neuroanatomy allows for the identification of patterns of brain organization, the inclusion of other species and an adoption of comparative viewpoints  ...  Acknowledgments AH is the recipient of a CNPq productivity grant (304130/2011-7).

Synergies in coordination: a comprehensive overview of neural, computational and behavioral approaches

Michaela Bruton, Nicholas O'Dwyer
2018 Journal of Neurophysiology  
With so many operational definitions for the one term, it becomes difficult to use as either a descriptive or explanatory concept, yet it remains pervasive and apparently indispensable.  ...  By providing a comprehensive overview of the multifaceted ideas about synergies, our goal is to move away from the compartmentalization and narrow focus on one level and promote a broader perspective on  ...  In all these techniques, the observed data are modeled as a linear combination of a small set of basis vectors.  ...

Inferring and Testing Hypotheses of Cladistic Character Dependence by Using Character Compatibility

F. Robin O'Keefe, Peter J. Wagner, J. Wiens
2001 Systematic Biology  
These methods can test the character independence model as a hypothesis before phylogeny reconstruction, or can be used simply to test for correlated evolution.  ...  Previously proposed tests of correlated character evolution require a model phylogeny and therefore assume that nonphylogenetic correlation has a negligible effect on initial tree construction.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The concepts regarding the ordination of compatibility-based coef cients of associatio n were devised by the senior author as part of his dissertation research at the University of Chicago  ...

Cerebral torque is human specific and unrelated to brain size

Li Xiang, Timothy Crow, Neil Roberts
2019 Brain Structure and Function  
These findings are consistent with the concept that a "punctuational" genetic change of relatively large effect introduced lateralization in the hominid lineage.  ...  These are assumed to derive from a lateralized gradient of embryological development of the human brain.  ...  Stephen Lawrie for access to MRI scans of humans at the University of Edinburgh and staff at the University of Oxford for help in scanning procedures and for access to the series of MRI scans from normal  ...

Connectivity-based parcellation: Critique and implications

Simon B. Eickhoff, Bertrand Thirion, Gaël Varoquaux, Danilo Bzdok
2015 Human Brain Mapping  
Due to the requirements of different applications and datasets, CBP has diverged into a heterogeneous family of methods.  ...  CBP assumes that there is a latent structure of parcels in a region of interest (ROI). First, connectivity strengths are computed to other parts of the brain for each voxel/vertex within the ROI.  ...  The wish to assess the 'trueness' of clusters within (i.e., cluster comparison) or between (i.e., model comparison) a cluster number choice may be a more legitimate concern.  ...

We asked if wild Bornean orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii) focus on speci c food species to meet nutritional requirements during lean fruit periods.  ...  We suggest that orangutans at Tuanan consume kamunda to cope with episodes of fruit scarcity and that this species, which is not found in abundance at other Bornean orangutan sites, may contribute to the  ...  This research is funded by CGL-2015-63648-P (Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, Spain).  ...

The dynamics of embodiment: A field theory of infant perseverative reaching

2001 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Paolo Viviani for his helpful critique of an earlier version of this commentary. What's a modeler to do? R2.3.  ...  Regardless of the particular modeling architecture, which may be a matter of preference, we believe that the number one criterion by which to judge the success of the enterprise is the model's compatibility  ...  Incidentally, this explains why the object concept is, for Piaget, inseparable from the concepts of space, time, and causality).  ...

Editorial NQ
2007 NeuroQuantology  
The nature of consciousness and its place in the universe remain mysterious. Classical models view consciousness as computation among the brain's neurons but fail to address its enigmatic features.  ...  Critics deride this comparison as a mere "minimization of mysteries" and quickly point out that the brain is too warm for quantum computation which in the technological realm requires extreme cold to avoid  ...  The processes discussed involve the combined concepts of Space-Time-Event-Motion (STEM) to form a new concept.  ...
