The Size Law applies well to each of the above cortex systems, as well as elsewhere e. Books by Christopher Cherniak. Ryan Carmody marked it as to-read Feb 09, The Cherniak laboratory has therefore been gauging how well wiring-optimization ideas from computer microchip design apply to brain structure.

Feb 09, Simon added it Shelves: This concept seems to account quite precisely for aspects of neuroanatomy at multiple hierarchical levels.
Information transmission may not be cost-free even within a cell, nucleus, or genome. For example, a statistically significant supra-chromosomal homunculus — a global representation of the human body – appears to extend over the entire genome in the nucleus.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Wiring minimization can be detected at multiple levels e. In some aspects, the brainwiring appears virtually perfectly optimized, yet the rationality has layers of impossibility between it and perfection. Stich – – Philosophy of Science 56 1: The Locality and Globality of Instrumental Rationality: Science Logic and Mathematics.
Alex Sibelle marked it as to-read Jul 04, However, such problems are NP-complete; exact solutions generally appear to entail bruteforce searches, with exponentially exploding costs.

The apercu motivating the rationality critiques is conveyed by the realization that standard idealizations entail some deductive omniscience – for instance, triviality of portions of the deductive sciences. Chetniak significance of ultra-fine neural optimization remains an open question. Find it on Scholar. No keywords specified fix it. Sev marked it as to-read Jan 01, Now a connection-minimization idea is being explored for the miinmal genome.
Vijay Veeraraghavan added it Oct 01, In particular, longrange connectivity is a critically constrained neural resource, with strong evolutionary pressure to employ efficiently. Daniel Laurier – manuscript.

Rationality and Requirements of Logic. In Minimal Rationality, Christopher Cherniak boldly fherniak the myth of Man the the Rational Animal and the central role that the “perfectly rational agent” has had in philosophy, psychology, and other cognitive sciences, as well as in economics.
If a complete system is in fact perfectly optimized, then the smaller the subset of it evaluated by itself, the poorer the optimization tends to appear. Proceedings of 13th International Congress. Mariam marked it as to-read Feb 28,
