Abstract

We propose a framework of neurocognitive experiments that clarifies the mathematical struc-ture of experiments and can be used to analyze experimental results and to determine the limitation of their possible interpretation. In contrast to the conventional analysis that em-ploys simple Boolean logic, the present analysis treats classification in terms of higher-order functions. We also predict the existence of a previously unidentified type of neuron.
