Beyond Neural Coding? Lessons from Perceptual Control Theory

Xerxes D. Arsiwalla, Ruben Moreno Bote, and Paul Verschure

Abstract:

Pointing to similarities between challenges encountered in today’s neural coding and twentieth-century behaviorism, we draw attention to lessons learned from resolving the latter. In particular, Perceptual Control Theory posits behavior as a closed-loop control process with immediate and teleological causes. With two examples, we illustrate how these ideas may also address challenges facing current neural coding paradigms.
