Michael and I discuss the philosophy and a bit of history of mental representation including the computational theory of mind and the language of thought hypothesis, how science and philosophy interact, how representation relates to computation in brains and machines, levels of computational explanation, and we discuss some examples of representational approaches to mental processes like bayesian modeling.

Recently I was interviewed on Ginger Campbell’s podcast Brain Science.

You can hear more about me, the show, and a bit about deep learning and how it relates to neuroscience if you’d like.
