Epistemic Foundations of Symbolic Dynamics

Epistemic Foundations of Symbolic Dynamics The usefulness of symbolic dynamics rests on finding “good partitions” of the phase space, e.g. by construction of generating partitions which allow to approximate individual points in phase space by sustained measurements of coarse-graining devices. This is not possible for “misplaced” partitions where an intrinsic grain remains which makes certain […]

Symbolic Dynamics of Neurophysiological Data

Symbolic Dynamics of Neurophysiological Data ERP data are given as large ensembles of short nonstationary (transient) and noisy time series. Symbolic dynamics of ERPs describes intertrial coherence of polarity deflections by running cylinder entropies and related measures. We have provided heuristics for symbolic encoding of ERP data, such as the median encoding (REF), the half-wave […]

Event-related Brain Potentials in Language Processing Event-related Brain Potentials (ERP) are commonly regarded to be tiny impulse responses in the electroencephalogram (EEG) generated by neural networks that are time-locked to the perception or processing of stimuli and blended by the spontaneous EEG that reflects the ongoing, continuous activity of the brain. In language processing, unexpected […]
