Sequence Coding and Learning

Sequence Coding and Learning

(p.35) 3 Sequence Coding and Learning
Dynamic Coordination in the Brain

Gilles Laurent

The MIT Press

The brain generates sequences or activity that are patterned in time and can be linked to the dynamic nature of the brain, the nature of the physical world, and the temporal structure in the world. In contrast, coding in the brain refers to the idea that information is contained in the brain’s patterned activity. This chapter focuses on sequence coding and learning as well as the likely coevolution of learning and representation systems in the brain. It examines the link between perception and memory in the context of brain “codes” and how learning helps generate stable dynamic attractors for perception and action. It also makes a distinction between “encoding” and “decoding”.

Keywords:   brain, sequences, sequence coding, learning, representation systems, perception, memory, action, encoding, decoding
