This chapter examines the role of computational methods in determining brain mechanisms. Computation is a key basis for modeling complex phenomena such as cognition. Computation’s language is the best available source for providing information regarding information encoding, its storage, modification, and use by natural and synthetic systems. Computation also involves the investigation of natural and artificial information-gathering techniques. Computing principles are categorized into a number of sections, including computation, communication, and coordination. These sections or categories form the basis of computation’s language. Tools and concepts available within these categories emerge as a strong and suitable medium for expressing natural information process theories. Computational language has also played a key role in understanding perceptions.

Keywords:   computational method, information encoding, computing principles, computational language, perceptions
