Behavior I 125
Behavior/Learning/Algorithm/Frith: there are also algorithms to learn what exactly is to be done to get a reward:
I 126
TD-Algorithm/Machine/Learning: (temporal difference): this algorithm allows to determine the correct action sequence (also an Actor-Critic model).
Criticism: the critic comments on the change in value before and after the action (temporal difference). So a path is found that leads to the reward.
Value/associative learning: has no exact match in the real world. Only in the model.
I 127
Associative learning/Frith: associative learning constructs a world map in the brain.
I 129
For example, the gripping opening of the hand opens up more for a cherry when an apple is nearby.
Brain: the brain automatically prepares action programs, in relation to objects in the environment.
I 130
Map/Brain/Frith: there is only one "world map" in the brain, not a series of maps. The map itself has no memory. It is like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope. An incorrect prediction changes the pattern and replaces the old one.
Cultural Relativism/VsFrith: one could argue that the mind is constantly adapting itself to a culture that is the work of many brains.
FrithVsVs: this fails to see the difference between conscious and unconscious processes.
Consciousness/Virginia Woolf: E.g The novel "The Waves": here the consciousnesses are described in complete isolation from each other. But the reader will be familiar to everyone.
I 224
Imitation/Frith: there is a compulsion to imitate other people.
For example, students who are dealing with a "senior vocabulary" are slower.
