Research Project Overview by
This research project tries to answer two main questions:
1) What are the set of coordinated brain areas and structures responsible for human ability to use language?
2) On what brain processes are the production and comprehension of the meanings of words and sentences based?
By answering these questions, the research project will bridge a fundamental gap between brain and mind, thus opening the road to important future technological applications in essential areas such as human language and mind-reading.
BM-SCIENCE – Brain & Mind Technologies Research Centre is a scientific research organization, founded in 2002 in Finland by two neuroscientists (Alexander and Andrew Fingelkurts) and a computer science and IT specialist (Carlos Neves), focused on the study of human brain and mind.
Its main areas of interest and expertise are:
Founding principles, vocation, core motivation, goals:
Selection of previous and ongoing research projects with valuable scientific results (both fundamental and for applied science) and closer to the aim of the suggested project:
www.Mind-Consciousness-Language.com is an expanding international network of researchers, founded in 2002 by two Italian scholars, Giorgio Marchetti and Giulio Benedetti, focused on the relationship between mind, consciousness, and language.
www.Mind-Consciousness-Language.com promotes and supports:
have joined their effort to carry out experimental research on the human cognitive activity involved in using or perceiving language.
BM-SCIENCE and www.Mind-Consciousness-Language.com have had different starting points but interestingly complementary and parallel approaches:
An example of 16-channel EEG record exhibiting some coincident “rapid transition processes” (RTPs) between different EEG channels
An example of simple and complex short-term metastable “operational modules” (OMs)
Both approaches (Brain Operational Architectonics and MindOperational Semantics) share the view that:
Research Project: Operational Aspects (1)
This research project will empirically ascertain what correspondence exists between:
the brain operations identified by Brain Operational Architectonics (simple and complex Operational Modules)
the cognitive operations theorized by Mind Operational Semantics (elemental mental operations, mental categories, and correlational networks).
Attentional focalization, attentional discarding, representation, comparison, presence keeping, memory
Research Project: Operational Aspects (2)
In order to ascertain what correspondence exists between the brain operations identified by BrainOperational Architectonics and the cognitive operations theorized by Mind Operational Semantics it is necessary to perform some experiments.
The experiments should test the relationships existing between each of the two kinds of brain operational modules identified by BrainOperational Architectonics
each of the three cognitive operational levels theorized by Mind Operational Semantics.
By revealing what correspondence exists between the brain operations identified by Brain Operational Architectonics and the cognitive operations theorized by MindOperational Semantics, experiments will make it possible to:
and consequently to
The systematic analysis of the meanings of words and linguistic thoughts in terms of brain operations through advanced EEG analysis techniques developed by BM-Science may lead in the future to fundamental technological innovations in areas such as:
Why missing the opportunity of taking part in a project that may have significant scientific implications and lead to important future technological innovations?
