Origins: Brain and Self Organization

recognition. The observers were trained to recognize two images A and B. After training the images A or B were exposed to the observer and besides them images which formed transitional row between A and B and to the left from A were also shown. The observers did not know about the row. They must answer only A or B. The amount of received information for every image in LHS and RHS was calculated. The LHS acts according to the predictions of multidimensional space theory. The more the image is displaced from the discriminant function in space the better is recognition. In the RHS the amount of information decreases to both sides from the learned image. It means that the RHS memorizes the concrete image in full detail without the connection with other images. This conclusion was confirmed in other form of experiment.Thus.the mutual functioning of both dichotomies allows the visual brain to create the model of the visual world. The information kept in model is highly ordered. It facilitates the process of extraction of information from the model and comparing it with the coming information. This process may be termed visual thinking.The right PPC combines in concrete image the elements of image described by right ITC The left PPC constructs the scene. from the invariant description of the patterns in left ITC. Thus as a result of mutual functioning of basic visual mechanisms. both generalized abstract and concrete descriptions of an object appear. Usually this categories are related to more highly psychic functions.
