BRAIN CORTEX MACHINE LOBES PART 44
The cerebral cortex is derived from the pallium, a layered structure found in the forebrain of all vertebrates. Vertebrates are animals that are members of the subphylum Vertebrata (chordates with backbones).
Vertebrates include the overwhelming majority of the phylum Chordata, with currently about 64,000 species. Vertebrates include amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and birds, as well as the jawless fish, bony fish, sharks and rays.
This of course includes humans, and now the definition can apply to machine brains containing a Cortex.
The cerebral cortex is the layer of the brain often referred to as gray matter. The cortex (thin layer of tissue) is gray because nerves in this area lack the insulation that makes most other parts of the brain appear to be white.
The cortex covers the outer portion (1.5mm to 5mm) of the cerebrum and cerebellum. The portion of the cortex that covers the cerebrum is called the cerebral cortex. It's responsible for sensing and interpreting input from various sources and maintaining cognitive function. Sensory functions interpreted by the cerebral cortex include hearing, touch, and vision. Cognitive functions include thinking, perceiving, and understanding language.
MACHINE CORTEX LOBES
Is it possible to have machine cortex lobes? Which lobes apply to the machine Brain Cortex currently under construction? The Parietal Lobe is involved in the reception and processing of sensory information in the human body. The Brain Cortex machine has 32 input sensors and it can sense the outside world with light, therefore it has a governing Parietal Lobe which handles sensory information.
The human Frontal Lobe is involved with decision-making, problem solving, and planning. The Brain Cortex machine has a computer program that can ask questions and remember information. The program solves problems and makes decisions to accomplish this, therefore it has a Frontal Lobe.
The Occipital Lobe in a human brain is involved with vision. The Brain Cortex machine has one eye that can see light intensity, therefore it has an Occipital Lobe.
A biological Temporal Lobe is involved with memory, emotion, hearing, and language. The Brain Cortex machine has 96,000 bits of memory, and it can communicate with English language. Thus, it has a limited Temporal Lobe.
