Theoretical arguments and empirical evidence in neuroscience suggests that organisms represent or model their environment by minimizing a variational free-energy bound on the surprise associated with sensory signals from the environment. In this paper, we study phase transitions in coupled dissipative dynamical systems (complex Ginzburg-Landau equations… CONTINUE READING
