GP CaKe: Effective brain connectivity with causal kernels [article]

Luca Ambrogioni, Max Hinne, Marcel van Gerven, Eric Maris
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We construct a novel class of causal covariance functions that enforce the desired properties of the causal kernels, an approach which we call GP CaKe.  ...  Here we propose to model this causal interaction using integro-differential equations and causal kernels that allow for a rich analysis of effective connectivity.  ...  We call this new effective connectivity method Gaussian process Causal Kernels (GP CaKe).  ...

Epistemological Strata and the Rules of Right Reason

Robert Cummins, Pierre Poirier, Martin Roth
2004 Synthese  
As a result, we can expect there to be important epistemic differences between the way brains, individuals, and science work.  ...  Every connection in a net is involved in the production of outputs and new representations are added by adjusting the net's connections.  ...  A scientific theory is a matrix of synaptic connections!  ...

Phasic norepinephrine is a neural interrupt signal for unexpected events in rapidly unfolding sensory sequences – evidence from pupillometry [article]

Sijia Zhao, Maria Chait, Fred Dick, Peter Dayan, Shigeto Furukawa, Hsin-I Liao
2018 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
A prominent theory (Dayan & Yu, 2006) proposes that the brain monitors for 'unexpected uncertainty' – events which deviate substantially from model predictions, indicating model failure.  ...  routinely reports the statistical structure of our surroundings, even when not behaviourally relevant, we used rapid tone-pip sequences that contained perceptually salient pattern-changes associated with  ...  This enables us to establish causal relationships between neural activity, brain connectivity, and behavior at the fundamental level of individual neurons and neural connections, Fig. (a) and (b).  ...

Cost-to-Go Function Approximation [chapter]

2017 Encyclopedia of Machine Learning and Data Mining  
It maintains a set, S , of most specific hypotheses that are consistent with the training data and a set, G, of most general hypotheses consistent with the training data.  ...  In the following, we will assume a two-class problem with a positive and a negative class. The COVERING algorithm starts with an empty theory.  ...  We will illustrate this concept with a simple example. One of the key difficulties in calculating a causal effect is unmeasured confounding, i.e., hidden common causes.  ...
