1. Mind in the information age; 2. Structures of intelligence; 3. Principles of representation and control; 4. Motivated experience; 5. Visceral and somatic frames of mind; 6. Subjective intelligence; 7. Objective experience; 8. Information in the age of mind
The neural structures of the brain exist to construct information. They do this by creating concepts that relate internal, personal need to external, environmental reality. Meaning is formed in the brain by neural network patterns that traverse these two structures of experience: the visceral nervous system (representing personal need) and the somatic nervous system (interfacing with external reality). How exactly does the brain get from constructing information tocreating meaning, and what can this process tell us about the nature of experience? This book addresses both of these questions, making an important contribution to both neuroscience and philosophy.
