In the target article [1] M. Rabinovich and co-authors reviewed a theory of nonlinear dynamic of information flow in the brain. They described how mental representations can be modeled in this theory. They addressed cognitive processes of top-down and bottom-up information flow, which are fundamental for relating information inside the brain to objects and events in the outside world. The article appropriately emphasizes that Shannon information is inadequate for characterizing conceptual… CONTINUE READING
