Coding and representation

Preview

This part presents four chapters on the concept of coding and representation. The first chapter focuses on the online coding and representation of information by means of neuronal activity. The second argues that the ability of the brain to segregate and integrate information, to make use of population and predictive coding, makes for a system that is specialized for memory. The third discusses the concept of memory trace. The fourth chapter presents a synthesis of the chapters in this part.

Keywords: memory; brain; neuronal activity; memory trace; online coding; information
