METRIC TENSOR AS DEGREE OF COHERENCE IN THE DYNAMICAL ORGANIZATION OF THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM

TLDR
The degree of coherence in the oscillatory activities of neuron can be interpreted as embodying a metric tensor of non-Euclidean space that produce topological order associated to CNS development.

Tensor geometry: a language of brains & neurocomputers. Generalized coordinates in neuroscience & robotics

TLDR
Utilizations of the tensor approach center on natural and artificial sensorimotor operations, promoting a co-evolution of coordinated (and intelligent) robots with Nature’s systems such as adaptive cerebellar compensatory reflexes.

Moving in three-dimensional space: frames of reference, vectors, and coordinate systems.

TLDR
The question of spatial representation is a theme common to a variety of movements in three-dimensional space, and the neural systems involved in the production of each must deal with aspects that are particular to that task.

Cognitive neurobiology: a computational hypothesis for laminar cortex

TLDR
The functional capacities of a novel scheme for cognitive representation and computation are outlined, and the possible implementation of this scheme in the massively parallel organization of the empirical brain is explored.

Tensor Network Theory of the Central Nervous System and Sensorimotor Modeling

TLDR
Brain theory is quickly developing into a central focus among disciplines as varied as Neuroscience, Machine Intelligence and Robotics, Computer Science and Mathematics, Health Care and Rehabilitation, and Philosophy and Humanities.

Tensor Theory of Brain Function. The Cerebellum as a Space-Time Metric

TLDR
The Tensor Network Theory of Central Nervous System (a geometrical abstraction and generalization of the known vector-matrix approaches) is capable of yielding a usable understanding and a tensorial network model capable of generating motor coordination via cerebellar-type neuronal circuits is offered.

Is the cerebellar cortex a biological clock in the millisecond range?

Space-time structure

TLDR
This chapter discusses the meaning of the metric according to the special theory of relativity and some relations between ordinary and invariant derivatives and the generalizations of Einstein's theory.

Embodiments of Mind

Preface by Jerome Y. LettvinWarren S. McCulloch was an original thinker, in many respects far ahead of his time. "Of all our contemporaries in brain research McCulloch is the most personal,

Subjective referral of the timing for a conscious sensory experience: a functional role for the somatosensory specific projection system in man.

TLDR
A modified hypothesis is proposed that for a peripheral sensory input, the primary evoked response of sensory cortex to the specific projection (lemniscal) input is associated with a process that can serve as a 'time-marker'; and after delayed neuronal adequacy is achieved, there is a subjective referral of the sensory experience backwards in time so as to coincide with this initial ' time-marking'.

Integrative Action of the Nervous System

TLDR
The functions of the Brain and the Theories of their Relation are studied in detail in the second volume of Nick Wade's Mind and Body, which aims to clarify the role of the nervous system in human health.
