Has the brain evolved to answer “binding questions” or to generate likely hypotheses about complex and continuously changing environments?

  • Birgitta Dresp (a1) and Jean Charles Barthaud (a2)

We question the ecological plausibility as a general model of cognition of van der Velde's & de Kamps's combinatorial blackboard architecture, where knowledge-binding in space and time relies on the structural rules of language. Evidence against their view of the brain and an ecologically plausible, alternative model of cognition are brought forward.
