Robot Consciousness: Physics and Metaphysics Here and Abroad

Authors: Stephen B. Ripley
Comments: 24 Pages.

Interest has been renewed in the study of consciousness, both theoretical and applied, following developments in 20th and early 21st-century logic, metamathematics, computer science, and the brain sciences. In this evolving narrative, I explore several theoretical questions about the types of artificial intelligence and offer several conjectures about how they affect possible future developments in this exceptionally transformative field of research. I also address the practical significance of the advances in artificial intelligence in view of the cautions issued by prominent scientists, politicians, and ethicists about the possible dangers of such sufficiently advanced general intelligence, including by implication the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

Translate Brain Activity into Speech

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 52 Pages.

Patients with such speech loss often rely on alternative communication devices that use brain–computer interfaces (BCIs) or nonverbal head or eye movements to control a cursor to spell out words. [33] Measuring optical blood flow in the resting human brain to detect spontaneous activity has for the first time been demonstrated by Wright State University imaging researchers, holding out promise for a better way to study people with autism, Alzheimer's and depression.

Physical Activity Reduces Brain Aging

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 50 Pages.

Incremental physical activity, even at light intensity, is associated with larger brain volume and healthy brain aging. [33] Measuring optical blood flow in the resting human brain to detect spontaneous activity has for the first time been demonstrated by Wright State University imaging researchers, holding out promise for a better way to study people with autism, Alzheimer's and depression.

Mr. Y

Authors: Toshichan-Man
Comments: 15 Pages.

------ A 22-year-old man with a social anxiety disorder who has left a picture of three cats ------ A 22-year-old man suffering from social anxiety disorder jumped down from the eighth floor of the apartment and committed suicide. Social anxiety disorder in a case (hereinafter referred to as Y) is estimated to be onset at the age of 12 years. Y's only hobby is drawing pictures, and for Y, his home cat was his only friend. And there are 3 pictures of cats left behind. Y was deeply moved by Tsurumi's work, and one of them, "The Complete Personality Remodeling Manual," states that "Drinkling alcohol little by little while going out. The content of "can be changed" was hidden and executed because I was very troubled by social anxiety disorder. Alcohol consumption gradually increased, and one day, Y jumped and committed suicide in an alcoholic drunk state suffering from a social anxiety disorder that did not show a tendency to decrease.

On Memory

Authors: Royan Rosche
Comments: 2 Pages.

I explain what Memory is, how it can be used and the difference between conscious memory and unconscious memory. I give examples of tools on how to bring unconscious memories into conscious perception. I show how one can consciously use tools to create a memory. Memory is the human ability to access a storehouse of knowledge, because the body records everything automatically, on just needs to know how to access all this data.

Learn a New Skill with Short Breaks

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 43 Pages.

In a study of healthy volunteers, National Institutes of Health researchers found that our brains may solidify the memories of new skills we just practiced a few seconds earlier by taking a short rest. [31] Focused ultrasound from outside the body can safely and reversibly open the blood–brain barrier in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, researchers in Canada have shown for the first time. [30] Small vessel vasculitis—inflammation of the small blood vessels—appears as a stain of tiny, red dots covering the skin that, depending on the severity, can evolve into painful pustules or ulcers.

Light and Sound Treat Alzheimer's Disease

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 55 Pages.

Not much is known about the course of events leading to Alzheimer’s disease, but the formation of toxic β-amyloid plaques and phosphorylated tau proteins have long been described as major hallmarks of the disease. [34] Neurobiologists Cátia Frias and Corette Wierenga have studied the formation of inhibitory synapses, a complex process that occurs when the brain adapts. Their research uncovered an astonishing link to autism. [33]

Brain's Auto-Complete Function

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 51 Pages.

A new collaborative study between the Universities of Birmingham and Bonn now reveals the underlying mechanisms of this auto-complete function. [33] Measuring optical blood flow in the resting human brain to detect spontaneous activity has for the first time been demonstrated by Wright State University imaging researchers, holding out promise for a better way to study people with autism, Alzheimer's and depression.

The Mechanics of Perception

Authors: Sunil Thakur
Comments: 21 Pages.

Perception is a very complex process. Physics examines not only the mechanism of communication of information but also the role of mind/consciousness in the process of perception. Medical science assumes that the brain processes and analyzes the information it receives from the sense organs. It also suggests that the brain is the decision-making authority. Medical science assumes that the mind and consciousness do not play any role in the process of perception. In this paper, we have analyzed all aspects of the process of perception. We have shown that the information is not communicated physically. We have also shown that the information is projected in physical form only in the state of mental alertness. This paper also shows that the mind, not the brain, is the decision-making authority. This paper resolves several major theoretical problems in physics and offers clues to the solutions to some other unresolved issues like measurement problem and entanglement problem. It also adds a new dimension to the world of neuroscience by showing that the mind is the key player in the process of perception.
