Image coding mechanism centred on the cortex

Updated: May 29, 2022

Studying the "Study of Consciousness" (Stanislas Duanne) can further deepen your understanding of coaching theory.

I am studying to add a unique flavour to "unconscious rewriting".

This series of blog posts are my study notes. This time, the theme that follows the unconscious and conscious

I will write a "sign of consciousness".


There are many neurons with long axons in the cortex. The cortex on the front side of the brain becomes the centre to integrate and perceive conscious information. The process of perception is advanced while exchanging information with other areas of the brain that follow other functions.

Information is also exchanged in each area, but in the cortex, which is the central function, the brain shares the integrated information with each area simultaneously.

To that end, we have a hotline that connects directly to each region through spines in the axons of neurons.

A network of neurons with repetitive connections gradually reaches intellectual consensus while exchanging information, forming a unified interpretation of the perceived spectacle.

The most activated neurons support each other and gradually eliminate other interpretations. As a result, the missing parts of the image are recovered, and noise is eliminated.

After several repetitions of this process, the image drawn by the neuron encodes and fixes a well-interpreted version of the perceived image.

The coded image is more stable, noise-resistant, penetrating, and distinct from other intermediate-state images.

When appreciating Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa," we receive sensory information such as hands separated from the body smiles. Eyes floating in space and a variety of other information (name, meaning, da. Connect with knowledge about Vinci's genius, etc.) and integrate and understand it as a whole.

In the early stages, individual information is processed by individual neuronal groups in the ventral visual cortex.

Neurons that spread to different parts of the brain work together through central areas in the higher dimensions of the cortex.

These regions exchange vast amounts of information with various remote brain regions, and these neurons integrate information.

In other words, in the Mona Lisa image example above, multiple sensory modules converge into a single image interpretation.

The integrated interpretation is simultaneously returned to the regions where the sensory signal originated, and the integration is maintained.

Information is transmitted all at once from areas belonging to higher-order networks such as the prefrontal cortex to lower-order sensory areas. The use of neurons with long axons creates a single state of consciousness.
