Douglas Bemis: Constructing complex ideas

Douglas Bemis

My current project is to develop a comprehensive model of how complex ideas are constructed from individual pieces within the brain. This model will be based upon fMRI, MEG, and EEG data (and hopefully extended to intracranial data as well!). The end product will be a computational description of the neural processes responsible for combining individual mental representations into coherent and unified structures. A key component of this investigation is the use of minimal combinatorial contexts, such asĀ red boat, in order to isolate core combinatorial mechanisms.”
