Some System Comments on the Work of the Brain Hemispheres

Authors: Emanuel Gluskin

Even though it is known from physiology that despite the strong separation of the functions of the brain hemispheres, they do not work completely independently, we first suggest a simple physical and some "system" arguments for the mutual dependence of the hemispheres, which may be of some heuristic interest. An unusual point is that the distinction between the functions of the hemispheres is methodologically represented by two different (also in the frequency sense) "inputs" that the brain receives from the external world. This is a simplification that allows us to: (a) formulate the problem of frequency relations along the thinking process, and to thus come to the conclusion that for treatment of the information, brain must generate some electrical signals/processes; (b) consider the (unhealthy) case when the input can cause overburden of the right hemisphere. Regarding the latter, we see agreement between a signal and a system to be a natural requirement also in the biological case, and, in general, we see "system approach to biology" not just as something auxiliary, e.g., electrical modeling of a cell, but as an independent research tool, and believe that the suggested phenomenological point of view may be a motivating supplement to a standard biological consideration.

Comments: 11 Pages. "System approach to biology" is shown to be not just subordinated to the targets defined by the biologists (e.g., to create an electronic model of a cell), but also instructive in some points, both theoretical and applicative.
