Return of the Single Neuron Theory

Posted 7 Jul 2005 at 20:23 UTC by steve Share This

We reported last year on the Single Neuron Theory of Consciousness proposed by Steven Sevush of University of Miami School of Medicine. Sevush has now released a revised and expanded version his paper on the theory. In his own words: "the resulting scheme is one in which conscious behavior appears to be the product of a single macroscopic mind, but is actually the integrated output of a chorus of minds, each associated with a different neuron." A similar theory called Single Cell Consciousness was proposed by Jonathan CW Edwards of the University of London.

The Mentifex Theory of Mind is an alternative, rapidly being implemented in Mind.Forth AI for robots.

If your system is as nifty as it's supposed to, why not tart it up with web access and get it to spam everywhere for you?

Alternatively, try and participate a bit more in actual discussions. For example, what do you think is right or wrong with this singly-neuron business? Don't just say you have an alternative. In the same way, if you really do need someone's help to get money out of a country, don't email total strangers in capital letters.

Oh, and Wedesoft - good find and all, but for a start I only jut clicked on your link. At first, I assumed you were a fake ID for Menti. Second point is we should probably just ignore him...
