Consciousness, Functional Geometry and Internal Representation
TLDR
The approach henceforth named tensor network theory is sufficiently rich to allow specific computational modelling and addressed the issue of prediction, based on Taylor series expansion properties of the system, at the neuronal level, as a basic property of brain function.
Dynamic geometry, brain function modeling, and consciousness.
Geometrical approach to neural net control of movements and posture.
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.
Predictability of Brain and Decision Making
TLDR
The central issue in brain function is to understand how the internalization of the properties of the external world is realized within an internal functional space, which is closely related to dynamic geometry where Bayesian probability has been shown to be necessary for understanding this predictability.
Recursive Genome Function of the Cerebellum: Geometric Unification of Neuroscience and Genomics
Recursive Fractal Genome Function in the geometric mind frame of Tensor Network Theory (TNT) leads through FractoGene to a mathematical unification of physiological and pathological development of
Does the Cerebellum Implement or Select Geometries? A Speculative Note
TLDR
It is speculated that the cerebellum should be involved in implementing and/or selecting task-specific geometries for motor and cognitive skills, and its geometrical role deserves a renewal of interest, which may provide a better understanding of its specific contributions to motor and associative (cognitive) functions.
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

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.
Tensorial Brain Theory in Cerebellar Modelling
TLDR
The cerebellum has been studied by now in more detail than virtually any other part of the brain and attempts have been made to erect a structure in order to show how knowledge of the functioning may be built into an understanding of neural function.
VESTIBULO-OCULAR REFLEX ARC
TLDR
When Cajal and van Gehuchten developed the concept of axonal polarization, the elementary reflex arc acquired a more general significance and became the expression of the fundamental plan of structure and function of the nervous system.
The Cerebellum—New Vistas
TLDR
The present volume consists of papers prepared for a conference on the cerebellum which was held at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda on 15 -17 May 1980, and offers the best model the authors have for analyzing the vertebrate central nervous system.
