Neuroheuristics (or Neuristics ) studies the dynamic relationships between the complexity of knowledge acquired by neuroscience .


The word comes from the Greek νεύρον ( neuron , qui Refers to the nerve cell [1] ) and εύρισκω ( “euriskein” heuristic , qui Refers to a problem-solving procedure That Is Often caractérisée by ict informal, intuitive and speculative features [2 ] ).


Neuroheuristics [3] olefins has scientific paradigm avocation to Develop Strategies That Can Be Enabled To Understand brain and mind Following subsequent problems emerging from transdisciplinary studies Including philosophy, psychology , neuroscience , pharmacology , physics , artificial intelligence , engineering , computer science , economics and mathematics .

The research framework Introduced by the neuroheuristic paradigm Appears as an essential step for the investigation of the information processing by the brain Effected Because It is the outcome of Nature and nurtue , at the crossing of top-down and bottom-up design .

The neurobiologists apply a “bottom-up” research strategy in their studies. Caenorhabditis elegans . This article is free for republishing . [5] It is important to note that this is not the case.

The “top-down” strategy with the assistance of black box theory [6] appears to facilitate the fulfillment of the objectives. [7] The neuroheuristic (or neuristic ) paradigm offers as a possible and distinct approach to the study of brain and mind. [8] In this framework, a “result” can not be simply positive or negative because the process itself can not be reduced to proficiency. Dynamics is an essential feature of the neuroheuristic paradigm, but can not be considered as the neurobiological facet of holism as opposed to reductionism .
