The Theory of neuronal Cognition

Abstract : The Theory of neuronal Cognition (TnC) was formalized in 2010 [6]. It explains how a hierarchy of self-organizing maps is able to display cognitive abilities including consciousness, intelligence, emotions, planning, reading [2], creativity, motivation, joy [5], etc. TnC explanation power encompasses modified states of consciousness (placebo effect, hypnosis, sleep [3]) as well as many mental diseases symptoms and therapies (such as for Alzheimer's disease, autism or schizophrenia). Of even more interest for the IEEE SSCI participants is the fact that the computing requirement of the TnC are limited [1] – because the processing unit is not the neuron [4], but the cortical column (and there are only 160,000 cortical columns in the human brain).
