[Report] The 21st Tokyo Colloquium of Cognitive Philosophy (TCCP)

2010.06.16 ジョン・オデイ Permalink

On May 26th I gave a talk entitled "The Perceptual Constancy Problem as an aspect of the Binding Problem." In this talk I proposed a new approach to the perceptual constancies. I proposed that the problematic converse aspect of constancy - percptual relativity - is caused by the peculiar way in which properties tend to be co-represented within a sensory modality. I further proposed that perceptual relativity in the above sense is not simultaneous relativity, but rather a gestalt-like re-evaluation of the scene, much like so-called "mulitstable perception", such as when viewing a Necker cube. The underlying mechanisms should be very similar - a consequence which ought to be empirically testable.

【報告】 The 8th Tokyo Colloquium of Cognitive Philosophy (TCCP)

The Program of the 8th TCCP was a presentation by John O’Dea, a research fellow of UTCP. The title of his presentation was "Is there an Ethical Problem with Neuromarketing?" As indicated in the title, it was a review of the background and current state of Neuromarketing; i.e., the commercial use of neuroscientific knowledge or technology for the purpose of manipulating public opinion. Neuromarketing is one of hot topics within neuroethics, though there are not yet many neuroethical papers on neuromarketing. Assessing several studies on neural features of consumers and examples of actual commercial uses, O’Dea concludes that there’s no ethical problem with neuromarketing.
