I Have A Question About The Brain

10 Answers
A brain is like a computer. I have this question and would appreciate it greatly if an expert in the physchiatric field would answer. If a brain does not process information correctly does that mean the computer does not work?

I am not an expert at this. But your question is phased like a logical question already has an obvious answer embedded. If something does not work "correctly". I think it is, by definition, it does not work.

As a side note. I have some knowledge about neural network in computing. I think this is the best algorithm to mimic how a brain works in a digital computer. Neural network computing takes care of the fuzziness of a human brain. It is not simply true and false (i.e. 1 or 0)

Nevertheless, if anything does not process anything CORRECTLY, it does NOT WORK.

At one time it was thought that the brain was like a geological formation with layers on top of layers. This is how analysis got started, attempting to go below the surface to the primal areas. Then the brain became a chemical factory where somehow improper brain chemistry had to be corrected with chemicals. Now we know parts of the brain are connected with electrical signals which cause micro chemical reactions and send signals further on with excitations elsewhere. How is this like a computer?

If someone's brain doesn't process information correctly, then the computer is still working because it still does work to process the information. The result that follows from the work the brain does to process information (even though it is still the brain actually working) is more than likely always going to be the wrong result, so I suppose one could say the computer works, it just doesn't work properly.

No, the brain would still work. If a brain does not process information correctly that does not mean that the computer does not work because it is still completing the task. All that has to be done is re-navigate the brain help it find the right path. A non-functioning brain would be one that does not complete the task at all, if you get me. I'm not deep in the psychiatric field so if someone could please verify.

could you please try to make it easier for me to understand? I want to know what is wrong if a brain does not process information correctly. If there is not a malfunction what is wrong? There is a brain that processes information correctly and there is one that doesn't, can you tell me what the difference is between those two brains

there is not a malfunction. So what is wrong? The brain functions correctly but it is not working correctly. Do you know a lot about this? Are you in the physchiatric field? If there is not a malfunction what is wrong? Thanks.

I prefer people that have physchiactric experience that know a lot about this to answer. I would appreciate it a lot, thanks.

I am serious about my question and want respectful answers and when I say I want answers from experts that is what it means.

I hope I get answers to this question, preferably people with physchiatric experience. Thanks.
