Mirror neurons are considered as a mechanism which helps us understand the meaning and intention of a communicative signal. Therefore, they get activated by observing others' actions. One of the significance of these neurons lies in the relationship that they establish between sounds and their corresponding meaning. Once this correspondence is established, they can serve a base to form ...
The ongoing research funded by FAPESP/IBM aims to develop a neocortical network model with mirror neurons that recognizes verbs accordingly with their lexical parameters to mimic the cognitive performance of human subjects in a verb recognition task. During the evolution of the cerebral cortex, aspects of the structure of primitive olfactory areas have been adapted to new functions in t...
Computational modeling of the neural correlates of language processing is a fundamental step toward the cognitive computing of natural language. However, most studies of the neural correlates of text reading focus on nouns, and little is known about the underlying neural mechanisms for processing and recognizing verbs. Thus, our aim is to develop a neural network model with two layers t...
