Sensory Information and the Development of Cognition


Understanding when and how cognitive phenomena emerge during evolution remains a challenging problem. Determining the explanatory framework that combines several observations and data is a further crucial challenge in neuroscience research. These circumstances pose the question of whether the socalled neural code is governed by universal laws. What is the link between neuronal responses and the sensory indicators or signals that these purportedly represent? Indeed, it is a significant problem to provide explanations that allow us to appreciate how living organisms piece together acquired sensory information and how they represent it. In this brief work, we investigate some conceptual concerns about the relationships between sensory information perceived by the brain and its representational capacities. We propose specifically that the physical origin of information can be defended. As a result, we will study the ramifications of using the information idea as an ascribed concept as well as its connections to employing the same concept to refer to a real-world object.
