Abstract: Cognitive dynamics : the passage from learning to judgment

Neurons are mutually coupled through electrical pulses. The conventional visualization techniques ( ECG, fMRI) are characterized by low spatial resolution. We plan to investigate the single units and their couplings by means of the following methods : 1. Development of high sensitive interferometry though the use of “ slow ” light 2. Pulse visualization by means of interferometry and digital infrared holography on three types of samples( i. in vitro neurons; thin slices of rat brain , iii. plant cells )3. Analog simulations with laser diode networks , LED networks 4. Analysis of linguistic processes of literary, musical and pictorial texts.
