What is a neural network?

Summary Introduction

Introduction

The interlinked areas of the brain that aid in communication with each other are called neural networks. The concept of neural network can be thought of as an idea or a logical extension of distributed processing because thinking that the involvement of many regions in a particular cognitive process would be sensible if they are connected to each other.

Explanation of Solution

Answer and explanation

The four key principles of neural networks include complex structural pathways (networks) that form the brain's informational highway, structural pathways that are functional pathways that perform diverse actions, networks that operate dynamically (just like the dynamic nature of cognition), and the resting state of brain activity, which implies that the different areas of the brain are active all the time, even when no cognitive processes are taking place.

The structural connectivity produced by nerve axons that link different regions of the brain is the wiring diagram. Contemporary techniques have been developed to view the extensive mapping of the connections in the brain...
