Slide 1

The Brain's Concepts The Role of the Sensory-Motor System in Reason and Language George Lakoff University of California, Berkeley (with Vittorio Gallese)

Slide 2

With Thanks to The Neural Theory of Language Group International Computer Science Institute University of California, Berkeley Especially Jerry Feldman, Srini Narayanan, Lokendra Shastri, and Nancy Chang.

Slide 3

What Concepts Are: Basic Constraints Concepts are the components of reason, and constitute the implications of words and etymological expressions.

Slide 4

The Traditional Theory Reason and dialect are what recognize people from different creatures. Ideas in this way utilize just human-particular cerebrum systems. Reason is separate from recognition and activity, and does not make coordinate utilization of the tangible engine framework. Ideas must be " immaterial " in this sense.

Slide 5

We Claim Human ideas are encapsulated . Numerous ideas make coordinate utilization of the tactile engine limits of our body-cerebrum framework. Large portions of these limits are likewise present in non-human primates. One illustration, the idea of getting a handle on , will be examined in detail.

Slide 6

Amodality The customary hypothesis verifiably claims that even activity ideas, similar to get a handle on , don't make utilization of the tactile engine framework. As an idea , even handle must be free. In this manner, it is asserted that the idea handle is amodal . Since it is an idea , it must be sans methodology, regardless of the possibility that it assigns an activity in a particular methodology.

Slide 7

Concepts Are : Universal: they portray all specific instances; e.g., the idea of getting a handle on is the same regardless of who the operator is or what the patient is or how it is finished. Stable. Inside organized. Compositional. Inferential. They communicate to offer ascent to inductions. Social. They might be connected by hyponymy, antonymy, and so on. Important. Autonomous of the words used to express them.

Slide 8

Concepts might be either "concrete" (tactile engine) or "conceptual" (not tangible engine).

Slide 9

Basic Ideas Multimodality — Permits comprehensiveness Functional Clusters — High-level, work as conceptual units Simulation — Necessary for weightiness and logical derivation Parameters — Govern reproduction, strict inference, connection to dialect

Slide 10

Multimodality The activity of getting a handle on is not amodal , but rather multi-modular in a way that makes for all inclusiveness .

Slide 11

Functional Clusters Functional groups shape abnormal state units — with the inner social structure required by ideas. There are two sorts: Local bunches and Network groups. Multi-methodology is acknowledged in the mind through system groups, that is, parallel parietal-premotor systems. Arrange bunches are shaped by interconnected neighborhood groups of neurons, as accepted and mirror neurons.

Slide 12

Simulation To comprehend the importance of the idea get a handle on , one should at any rate have the capacity to envision oneself or another person getting a handle on a protest. Creative ability is mental recreation , completed by the same practical groups utilized as a part of acting and seeing. The conceptualization of getting a handle on through reenactment in this manner requires the utilization of the same utilitarian bunches utilized as a part of the activity and impression of getting a handle on .

Slide 13

Simulation and Enactment Visual creative energy utilizes some portion of an indistinguishable neural substrate from vision. Engine creative energy utilizes some portion of the same neural substrate is engine activity. Since you can comprehend a solid idea like getting a handle on just on the off chance that you can envision doing it or watching it, the limit with regards to mental reenactment is taken as the reason for importance. In this manner, activity and perception give the premise to seriousness in NTL.

Slide 14

Parameters All activities, observations, and reproductions make utilization of parameters and their qualities. Such neural parameterization is unavoidable. E.g., the activity of going after a question makes utilization of the parameter of bearing ; the activity of getting a handle on a protest makes utilization of the parameter of drive . A similar parameter values that portray the inward structure of activities and recreations of activities likewise describe the inner structure of activity ideas.

Slide 15

Structured Neural Computation in NTL The hypothesis we are plotting utilizes the computational displaying instruments of the Neural Theory of Language (NTL). NTL makes utilization of organized connectionism ( Not PDP connectionism!). NTL is "localist," with practical bunches as units. Localism permits NTL to describe exact calculations, as required in activities and in deductions. Since it utilizes utilitarian groups, NTL is not subject to the "grandma cell" complaint.

Slide 16

Advantages of Structured Connectionism Structured connectionism works on structures of the sort found in genuine brains. From the organized connectionism point of view, the inferential structure of ideas is a result of the system structure of the cerebrum and its association as far as useful groups .

Slide 17

Structured Connectionism accompanies: A dynamic recreation component that adjusts parameter qualities to circumstances. A neural restricting hypothesis. A spreading-initiation probabilistic derivation instrument that applies to useful bunches. These together take into account the demonstrating of both tactile engine reenactments and derivation.

Slide 18

In NTL, there are settled structures called mappings . For instance, an outline that structures an activity has an inside structure comprising of Roles, Parameters, and Phases. The thoughts of Multimodality, Functional Clusters, Simulation, and Parameters permit us to interface NTL, with organized connectionism, to neuroscience.

Slide 19

The Neuroscience Evidence Shows In the tangible engine framework, it is conceivable to describe these parts of ideas: Universality Semantic Role Structure Aspectual Structure (Phases) Parameter Structure

Slide 20

The Concept Of Grasping

Slide 21

Universality Is Achieved by MultiModality Multimodal useful bunches for an activity like getting a handle ablaze when: Grasping is performed, watched, envisioned, induced, or listened; The getting a handle on is of any sort, done by any operator, on any question, in any way, and in any area. In demonstrating such multimodality for an utilitarian group, we are demonstrating that the useful bunch assumes the reasonable part of all inclusiveness.

Slide 22

Multi-Modal Integration The premotor cortex is not a uniform field, but rather a mosaic of practically unmistakable regions (F1 to F7). Each of these premotor territories is correspondingly associated with unmistakable districts of the back parietal cortex. The premotor cortex is a piece of a progression of parallel utilitarian system bunches.

Slide 23

Multi-Modal Integration Cortical premotor zones are invested with tangible properties. They contain neurons that react to visual, somatosensory, and sound-related boosts. Back parietal ranges, customarily considered to process and partner absolutely tactile data, additionally assume a noteworthy part in engine control.

Slide 25

The fronto-parietal systems Rizzolatti et al. 1998

Slide 26

Area F5 Three classes of neurons : - Motor General Purpose neurons - Visuo-Motor neurons: -Canonical neurons -Mirror neurons

Slide 27

Area F5 General Purpose Neurons: General Grasping General Holding General Manipulating

Slide 28

General Purpose Neurons in Area F5 A Grasping with the mouth B Grasping with the cl. hand C Grasping with the ipsil. hand (Rizzolatti et al. 1988 )

Slide 29

General Purpose Neurons Achieve Partial Universality: Their terminating corresponds with an objective arranged activity of a general sort, paying little mind to effector or way.

Slide 30

F5c-PF Rizzolatti et al. 1998

Slide 31

The F5c-PF circuit Links premotor territory F5c and parietal region PF (or 7b). Contains reflect neurons. Reflect neurons release when: Subject (a monkey) performs different sorts of objective related hand activities and when: Subject watches another individual performing comparative sorts of activities

Slide 41

The Mirror System in Humans BA6

Slide 42

The Simulation Hypothesis How do reflect neurons function? By recreation. At the point when the subject watches another individual doing an activity, the subject is recreating a similar activity. Since activity and reenactment utilize a portion of the same neural substrate, that would clarify why similar neurons are terminating amid activity perception as amid activity execution.

Slide 43

Mirror Neurons Achieve Partial Universality , since they code an activity paying little heed to operator, persistent, methodology (activity/perception/hearing), way, area. Halfway Role Structure , since they code a specialist part and a reason part. The Agent Role: In acting, the Subject is an operator of that activity. In watching, the Subject recognizes the operator of the activity as having an indistinguishable part from he has when he is acting – in particular, the specialist part. The Purpose Role: Mirror neurons fire just for intentional activities.
