Michał Pierzchalski, PhD, Department of Informatics, NCU: “Searching for principles of cognitive development”

An approach to describing cognitive development using mathematical formalism from group theory was presented. This formalism was associated with the neural representations responsible for transformation in space. The author argued that cognitive development involves the creation of a low-dimensional neural representation responsible for all kinds of transformations. A hypothesis was made that this development can be expressed by the principle of symmetry.
