In his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Wittgenstein conveyed the idea that ethics cannot be located in an object or self-standing subject matter of propositional discourse, true or false. At the same

State of the Art: Mathematical Approaches in Brain Science

This chapter explores some of the most relevant mathematical structures used by brain researchers to unravel brain’s structure, function and dynamics. It starts by looking into the concept of brain

Elementary Principles in Cognitive Systems Modeling

This book is about thinking, in all its ontological, epistemological and operational facets. It deals not exclusively with the process of thinking, but also with conditions that must be created and

From Cells to Memories: A Categorical Approach

This chapter can be seen as a continuation of the precedent one in which the relationship between pyramidal neurons acquires a categorical treatment. Here we extend this view to sketch a theory of

Towards a Theory of Brain Structure and Function

The eminent mathematician Henri Poincare wrote “The aim of science is not things in themselves, as the dogmatists in their simplicity imagine, but the relations between things; outside those

The Categorical Imperative: Category Theory in Cognitive and Brain Science

In this book is conjectured that category theory could provide the necessary concepts to bridge the gap between the different levels of brain activity: from microscopic neuronal activity, to

The Shift Towards Structure

TLDR
The main motivation of this chapter is to formally frame the concept of structure, within a single unified framework, to provide formal descriptions that capture the general structure in the most economic way.
