Abstract:

We model the vague-to-crisp dynamics of formin percepts in the brain by combining two methodologies dynamic logic DL and operant learning process. Forming percepts upon the presentation of visual inputs are likened to model selection based on sampled evidence. Our framework utilizes the DL in selecting the correct percept among competing ones, but uses an intrinsic reward mechanism to allow stochastic online update in lieu of performing the optimization step of the DL framework We discuss the connection of our framework with cognitive processing and the intentional neurodynamic cycle.
