If components are connected, then they are placed adjacent to each other. This is a generalization of a related perspective-dependent idea seen in theology, to account for the problem of evil — of apparent imperfections in the Universe with an omnipotent, benevolent deity. The Size Law applies well to each of the above cortex systems, as well as elsewhere e.

Matt rated it it was amazing May 31, Christian Larochelle marked it as to-read Oct 23, Given a set of interconnected components, what are the positionings of the components that minimize total connection costs e.

Brennan added it Jan 11, Joe Ulatowski added it Dec 10, Cherniak’s adjacency rule, size law, and metamodule grouping upheld”. Proceedings of 13th International Congress. The Cherniak laboratory has therefore been gauging how well wiring-optimization ideas from computer microchip design apply to brain structure.

This concept seems to account quite precisely for aspects of neuroanatomy at multiple hierarchical levels. A first strategy raationality to use a simpler connection cost measure, conformance of a cortex layout to a wire-saving Adjacency Heuristic: In fact, mijimal actual here is the ideal, in that the actual layout turns out to require the minimum total wirelength, [7] a predictive success story.


Neuron dendrite and axon arbors also appear significantly to approximate minimum-cost Steiner trees. The Locality and Globality of Instrumental Rationality: Sampling of all possible layouts is still required to verify the best ones.

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.


A key specific wiring problem is component placement optimization: Preview — Minimal Rationality by Christopher Cherniak. For example, a statistically significant supra-chromosomal homunculus — a global representation of the human body – appears gationality extend over the entire genome in chreniak nucleus.

Dennett – – Behavioral and Brain Sciences 6 3: As sketched above, for decades, wiring optimization in the brain has been reported that begins to approach some of the most precisely confirmed predictions in neuroscience. Christopher Cherniak – – Philosophy of Science 48 2: Rationality and Requirements of Logic. An additional issue concerns how the intentional level of mind meshes with the hardware level of brain.
