Chaos, Cognition and Disordered Brain

Abstract


Important feature of chaotic transitions is a self-organization that presents a spontaneous order arising in a system when certain parameters of the system reach critical values. Recent findings suggest that these principles may implicate new concepts for understanding consciousness and cognition. Self-organization may produce random-like processes that could explain “randomness” in neural synchronization related to cognitive functions and consciousness, and also in mental disorganization related to psychopathological phenomena.
