Sensory Communication

Walter A. Rosenblith

The MIT Press

This comment that the search for principles of sensory communication seems to call for a mixed strategy, which in turn accommodates itself to a host of tactical solutions, as is apparent from the foregoing chapters. There is ample freedom of choice regarding the aspects of sensory communication that an investigator may elect to work on—the unique properties of sense organs, the neural encoding of sensory events, or the representation of properties of sensory stimuli in neural structures. No matter how one demarcates the field of sensory communication, the investigator must sooner or later come to grips with the issue of biological veridicality. Eventually, investigators will face the question: How natural should one’s paradigms be?

Keywords:   principles of sensory communication, mixed strategy, tactical solutions, freedom of choice, biological veridicality
