False categories in cognition: the Not-The-Liver fallacy

Felice L. Bedford
1997 Cognition  
The error involves how we identify meaningful processes and categories on the basis of data.  ...  Examples are given from three areas of cognition: (1) memory, where the misconception has fueled the popular implicit/explicit categories, (2) perception, where the misconception is used to re-evaluate  ...  The Not-the-Liver argument is not an argument against the existence of heterogeneous categories or fractionable categories or nonunitary categories or multi-level categories.  ...

A Congruence for Petri Nets

Vladimiro Sassone, Paweł Sobociński
2005 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
We introduce a way of viewing Petri nets as open systems. This is done by considering a bicategory of cospans over a category of p/t nets and embeddings.  ...  Technically, our results are similar to the recent work by Milner on applying the theory of bigraphs to Petri Nets.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors thank the anonymous referee for several useful comments which have allowed us to the improve the article.  ...

Jiaxin Cui, Yiyun Zhang, Dazhi Cheng, Dawei Li, Xinlin Zhou

Pointing to places and spaces in a patient with visual form agnosia

David P. Carey, H. Chris Dijkerman, Kelly J. Murphy, Melvyn A. Goodale, A. David Milner
2006 Neuropsychologia  
Previous investigations of visuospatial abilities in the visual form agnosic patient D.F. suggest that her egocentric sensorimotor processing is intact while her 'allocentric' judgments of spatial position  ...  It is possible that D.F.'s degraded performance reflects a relative (though not complete) preservation of categorical coding within the ventral stream, despite a loss of coordinate coding there.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported by grant no. 052443 from the Wellcome Trust to A.D.M.  ...

By comparison, the exact temporal dynamic of neural activity in these highly selective regions has received less attention.  ...  It is now well established that ventral occipito-temporal cortex is critically involved in object identification (Grill-Spector, 2003; Milner & Goodale, 1995; Ungerleider & Mishkin, 1982) and orderly organized  ... 

Institutions for behaviour specification [chapter]

J. L. Fiadeiro, J. F. Costa
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this framework, we characterise and relate the existence of adjoint situations between theories and models with the existence of terminal models and the difference between underspecification and nondeterminism  ...  such as [Sassone et al 93], and on our own past work relating specification logics and such process models [Fiadeiro and Costa 93, Fiadeiro et al 93, Sernadas et al 94] , we develop a notion of institution  ...  The classification on the relationship between the logic and the process models put forward in [Hennessy and Milner 85] concerns just the equivalence relations of the process model and the one induced  ...

Port automata and the algebra of concurrent processes

Martha Steenstrup, Michael A. Arbib, Ernest G. Manes
1983 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
We model a process-the unit of concurrent processing-as a port automaton, a certain type of nondeterministic sequential machine.  ...  We show how to compute the response of these automata, and study the properties of their port interconnections.  ...  (The exact definitions are not required for the present discussion; they may be found in Milne and Milner Finally, for any domain D, there is a domain 9(D), the powerdomain of D, whose members are a certain  ...

Transition systems, link graphs and Petri nets

2006 Mathematical Structures in Computer Science  
The framework is applied to a particular graphical model, known as link graphs, which encompasses a variety of calculi for mobile distributed processes.  ...  The framework is based on s-categories, which are a new variety of categories within which reactive systems can be set up in such a way that labelled transition systems can be uniformly extracted.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to thank the anonymous referees for their detailed reading and helpful comments, which have led to many clarifications and improvements in this paper.  ...

RPO, Second-Order Contexts, and λ-Calculus [chapter]

Pietro Di Gianantonio, Furio Honsell, Marina Lenisa
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show that, contrary to process calculi, one can deal directly with the λ-calculus syntax and apply Leifer-Milner technique to a category of contexts, provided that we work in the framework of weak bisimilarities  ...  However, even in the case of the transition system with minimal contexts, the resulting bisimilarity is infinitely branching, due to the fact that, in standard context categories, parametric rules such  ...  We show that, in principle, contrary to process calculi, one could deal directly with the λ-calculus syntax and apply Leifer-Milner technique to the category of term contexts induced by the λ-terms,  ...

Functional foods and health: a US perspective

J. A. Milner
2002 British Journal of Nutrition  
Unfortunately, defining the ideal diet is complicated by the numerous and diverse components that may influence biological processes.  ...  Inconsistencies in the literature may reflect the multi-factorial nature of these processes and the specificity that individual dietary constituents have in modifying genetic and epigenetic events.  ...  What is recognized is that the effect of food on health varies considerably among people, both in terms of its direction and magnitude (Clydesdale, 1998; Milner, 2000) .  ...

The Role of the Dorsal Visual Processing Stream in Tool Identification

Jorge Almeida, Bradford Z. Mahon, Alfonso Caramazza
2010 Psychological Science  
Our results indicate that the dorsal stream, in isolation from the ventral stream, is agnostic as to the identity of the objects that it processes.  ...  We show that information originating from the dorsal stream influences not only decisions requiring the selection of superordinate category labels, but also decisions that entail the selection of a basic-level  ...  Declaration of Conflicting Interests The authors declared that they had no conflicts of interest with respect to their authorship or the publication of this article.  ...

Final coalgebras and the Hennessy–Milner property

Robert Goldblatt
2006 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
This applies to coalgebras of any functor on the category of sets for which the bisimilarity relation is transitive.  ...  The existence of a final coalgebra is equivalent to the existence of a formal logic with a set (small class) of formulas that has the Hennessy-Milner property of distinguishing coalgebraic states up to  ...  Introduction and Overview Coalgebras of functors T : Set → Set on the category of sets have proven useful in modelling notions associated with data structures, transition systems, and process algebras  ...
