On the role of «pattern» and «symbol» concepts for simulation of the thinking process via neurocomputing

The concepts of «pattern» and «symbol» and their functions are discussed in the context of «thinking» system of combined neuroprocessors. It is shown that the pattern subsystem does play a key role in recording and store of information. The symbol subsystem initiation provides the transition to conventional semantic information and communications with environment. The paradigm of attention within the scheme presented is secured by a parametric effect of symbol subsystem on the image one.

The construction scheme of neuroprocessors able to realize the basic functions of thinking and scientific creativity

We propose a version of the neuroprocessor construction scheme, which in principle capable to solve problems commonly treated as creative work. The role of conventional information is discussed, and the specific block for the symbol formation is suggested. The system capable to solve logic problems has been pointed out. It is shown that the symbol (logical) subsystem is able to interpolate and extrapolate in the process of pattern recognition and prognosis.

Skin sensitivity: specificity of the dynamics of spatial­temporal patterns of activity of mechanoreceptors versus «labeled lines»

Through the development of methods for detecting the dynamics of spatial­temporal patterns of activity in the nervous system fundamental evidences obtained, that the sensory code have integrative nature and theories of localisation of function are inconsistent. The paper presents a review of electrophysiological data and models, indicating the integrative mechanisms of information coding in the peripheral skin analyzer of humans and animals.
