Ddl trivia or quizzes yet. Indeed, one of the better parts of the book is when Llinas explains the developmental processes involved in the growth of muscles and the motor system, from simple rhythmic motions on upward to finer and finer control.
A rodolfp book on the neural roots of consciousness that actually receives citation in respectable publications? Quotes from I of the Vortex: Jul 07, Alexi Parizeau rated it it e, amazing Shelves: The “sea squirt” eating its own brain.
Ben Heckler rated it it was amazing Aug 03, Soulcatcher rated it really liked it May 10, I won’t try to summarize the book, but here is my favorite quotation from it: Yet in fact most neuroscientists operate under a working theory that consciousness is some higher-order process, useful llina for advanced forms of cognition; many don’t even ascribe consciousness to other animals which I consider the malodorous residue of behaviorismand others think that it is purely an epiphenomenon with no causal power even though such things would literally violate basic laws of physics.
Jul 14, DJ marked it as to-read Shelves: It does not disappoint! As an adult, the sea squirt attaches itself to a stationary object then digests most of its own brain.

Sumamente interesante, aunque tiene dos capitulos un poquito pesados, pero vale la pena! Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The mobile larval form has a brainlike ganglion that receives sensory information about the llknas environment.
I of the Vortex: From Neurons to Self
To move through the environment safely, a creature must anticipate the outcome of each movement on the basis of incoming sensory data.
Perhaps it is my own temperament; I was never very interested in the fine mechanical questions of neuroscience; they always seemed trivial, “Easy Problems” in Chalmers’ terms, electrical engineering when what we need is a theory of operating systems. Tan simple como es. That is to say, if we look at how the brain generates creativity, we will see that it is not a rational process at all; creativity is not born out of reasoning.
Llinas spends page after page detailing these tiny mechanisms, never with any clear direction to the argument. In I of the Vortex, Rodolfo Llinas, a founding father of modern brain science, presents an original view of the evolution and nature of mind. Prediction must have a goal.
No obstante, es importante mencionar que la consciencia requiere de dos elementos: Patryk Piesiak rated it really liked it Dec 19, Entonces, para moverse activamente como estrategia exitosa de supervivencia usted necesita un cerebro que viene con la capacidad preinstalada de aprender, y usted necesita aprender acerca del contexto en el que se desenvuelve y luego a partir de ese aprendizaje ser capaz de formar ideas y percepciones que le permitan anticipar eventos, en otras palabras usted necesita pensar.
Viviana Maldonado rated it it was amazing Oct 09, J rated it really liked it Jun 23, Rofolfo is the first I’ve read so far who really understands that to explain consciousness we need to explain what consciousness DOES, what it is FOR; and voluntary motion seems like a very good candidate for that explanation. Books by Rodolfo R.
If ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny then it would strongly support his evolutionary argumentthough alas, the similarity is much exaggerated. I finally finished it right before going off to college, and I am glad that I stuck it out. Prediction is the ultimate function of the brain. Luis Urrego rated it liked it Jan 03, I read this book twice, it’s really worth it.
I of the Vortex: From Neurons to Self by Rodolfo R. Llinás
He illustrates the early evolution of mind through a primitive animal called the sea squirt. Every summer I understood more and more of it, and every summer I became even more determined to finish it. Return to Book Page. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This suggests that the nervous system evolved to allow active movement in animals. Thus the capacity to predict is most likely the ultimate brain function.
