The Relativistic Brain: How it works and why it cannot be simulated by a Turing machine

During this monograph, a mathematician and a neurobiologist sign up for forces to handle the most an important and arguable clinical questions of our occasions: can the beautiful capacities of the human mind be simulated by means of any electronic desktop? via combining mathematical, computational, neurobiological and evolutionary arguments, Ronald Cicurel and Miguel Nicolelis refute the prospect that any Turing computing device will ever achieve the sort of simulation.

The central projections of myelinated afferents have also been studied through bulk‐labelling after the injection of cholera toxin B subunit (CTb) into peripheral nerves. , those terminating throughout laminae I–V) are not labelled. Because of the small size of C fibres, there have been few studies of the central projections of individual afferents of this type (Sugiura, Lee and Perl, 1986). Conveniently, there are neurochemical markers that can be used to recognise different functional populations.
