Encephalon #23

The 23rd issue of Encephalon is now up at Madam Fathom! Another excellent installment, which this time has four main themes: Approaches to understanding the mind, Evolution, Cognitive abilities, and Language and behaviour.

My picks from this issue:
- A brief review of the problems with the modular view of mind/brain at The Neurocritic which led Fuster to develop his Network Memory theory (something I've posted on a number of times).
- A review of the Human Brain Evolving Symposium at The Thinking Meat Project. In particular the last paragraph, which actually has nothing to do with the symposium itself - it's a general comment on the utility of scientific method and discourse, and one which I think is an excellent point.
