Architectural Design of Mind & Brain from an Evolutionary Perspective

Last modified: 2017-10-09


To contribute to the development of a standard model of mind and brain, I present the general model I have been developing based on an interdisciplinary review of the literature. More specifically, I hope to show that evolutionary considerations are necessary to produce an accurate model of the mind as a whole. The basic architecture consists of three general design dimensions: a basic action control circuit (1st dimension), specific content domains (2nd dimension), and different levels of action-control circuits (3rd dimension), with the levels based on the evolutionary history and spatial layout of the brain, as well as increasing computational sophistication. It is hoped that this architecture will provide a complementary perspective and additional information to help develop a common standard model.
