The handbook of brain theory and neural networks by Michael A Arbib( )

41 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 2,838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second edition presents the enormous progress made in recent years in the many subfields related to the two great questions: how does the brain work? and, How can we build intelligent machines? This second edition greatly increases the coverage of models of fundamental neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, and neural network approaches to language. (Midwest)

The emergence of protolanguage : holophrasis vs compositionality( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Somewhere and somehow, in the 5 to 7 million years since the last common ancestors of humans and the great apes, our ancestors "got" language. The authors of this volume all agree that there was no single mutation or cultural innovation that took our ancestors directly from a limited system of a few vocalizations (primarily innate) and gestures (some learned) to language. They further agree to use the term "protolanguage" for the beginnings of an open system of symbolic communication that provided the bridge to the use of fully expressive languages, rich in both lexicon and grammar. But here consensus ends, and the theories presented here range from the compositional view that protolanguage was based primarily on words akin to the nouns and verbs, etc., we know today with only syntax lacking to the holophrastic view that protolanguage used protowords which had no meaningful subunits which might nonetheless refer to complex but significantly recurrent events. The present volume does not decide the matter but it does advance our understanding. The lack of any direct archaeological record of protolanguage might seem to raise insuperable difficulties. However, this volume exhibits the diversity of methodologies that can be brought to bear in developing datasets that can be used to advance the debate. These articles were originally published as Interaction Studies 9:1 (2008)
Neural organization : structure, function, and dynamics by Michael A Arbib( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who needs emotions? : the brain meets the robot( )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The editors of this book have assembled a panel of experts in neuroscience and artificial intelligence who have dared to tackle the issue of whether robots can have emotions from a scientific perspective. The study of the brain now usefully informs study of the social, communicative, adaptive, regulatory, and experiential aspects of emotion, and offers support for the idea that we exploit our own psychological responses in order to feel others' emotions. The contributors show the many ways in which the brain can be analyzed to shed light on emotions." "This book is written for researchers and graduate students in neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, robotics, and artificial intelligence."--Jacket
Language, music, and the brain : a mysterious relationship by Michael A Arbib( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book looks beyond mere auditory experience, probing the embodiment that links speech to gesture and music to dance. The study of the brains of monkeys and songbirds illuminates hypotheses on the evolution of brain mechanisms that support music and language, while the study of infants calibrates the developmental timetable of their capacities. The result is a unique book that will interest any reader seeking to learn more about language or music and will appeal especially to readers intrigued by the relationships of language and music with each other and with the brain
How the brain got language : the mirror system hypothesis by Michael A Arbib( )

21 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike any other species, humans can learn and use language. In this book, Michael Arbib presents the Mirror System Hypothesis, which suggests how complex imitation supported the breakthrough to pantomime, protosign and protospeech and then, through cultural evolution, to fully fledged languages
The metaphorical brain; an introduction to cybernetics as artificial intelligence and brain theory by Michael A Arbib( Book )

26 editions published between 1972 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The construction of reality by Michael A Arbib( Book )

29 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Michael Arbib, a researcher in artificial intelligence and brain theory, joins forces with Mary Hesse, a philosopher of science, to present an integrated account of how humans 'construct' reality through interaction with the social and physical world around them. The book is a major expansion of the Gifford Lectures delivered by the authors at the University of Edinburgh in the autumn of 1983. The authors reconcile a theory of the individual's construction of reality as a network of schemas 'in the head' with an account of the social construction of language, science, ideology and religion to provide an integrated schema-theoretic view of human knowledge. The authors still find scope for lively debate, particularly in their discussion of free will and of the reality of God. The book integrates an accessible exposition of background information with a cumulative marshalling of evidence to address fundamental questions concerning human action in the world and the nature of ultimate reality
Algebraic theory of machines, languages, and semigroups by Michael A Arbib( Book )

44 editions published between 1968 and 1975 in 4 languages and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The metaphorical brain 2 : neural networks and beyond by Michael A Arbib( Book )

13 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book combines two exciting quests, the quest to understand the workings of the human brain and the quest to build intelligent machines. It shows how each quest can provide insights vital to the success of the other. It develops basic ideas about neural networks, both artificial and biological, and introduces the language of schema theory to describe the distributed interactions that underlie intelligence in the brain of human, animal or robot. It reaffirms the paradigm of highly distributed cooperative computation, showing how it not only deepens our understanding of human mind/brain, but also catalyzes the development of a new generation of computing machinery. The book presents many new results, both from my own group and elsewhere, that have enriched that paradigm during the last fifteen years ... The book as a whole, although by no means light reading, should be accessible overall to anyone who reads Scientific American; but it is hoped that much of the material merits the attention not only of 'the intelligent laymen' but also of experts and serious students of artificial intelligence, neural networks, robotics, cognitive science, or neuroscience"--Preface
