Modeling as Part of Perception : a Hypothesis on the Function of Neural Oscillations

  title={Modeling as Part of Perception : a Hypothesis on the Function of Neural Oscillations},
  author={Raul Kompass and Mark Ott},
We argue that the effectiveness of synchronization of oscill atory neural activities coding simple features, as it relates to perceptual organization, may originate in the temporal characteristics of resonance that develops in a two-stroke architecture of neural information processing – a cycling between bottom-up and top-down mechanisms. We provide empirical evidence to support the idea that resonance involves the generation and evaluation of ‘models’ of spatial and temporal stimulus… CONTINUE READING
