According to research, the brain can use the resources it has been given to make a very structured decision on how to react. The study is known as cognitive science and information theory. To explain the study further, when you in the dark and walking down a street, you see a shape on the road. Would you say that a shape is a person or a mailbox?

The decision your brain makes in the situation is what modern communication technology lies on.

When you look at the brain and way it processes it takes for it to understand a particular situation, it is assumed that it is best done through repetition. For example, if you are walking down the same road several times in a day or a week and you can see that the shape at the exact place is a mailbox, your brain makes the decision. The decision made is based on what the brain has understood in the past and what resources it has been fed within the present. Understanding how the brain works with processing information will teach students in a training and classroom setting, effectively.

The fundamental theory of how the brain works when it is posed with information is universal. The brain can process information based on past stimuli, and the present stimuli are called an empirical pattern. The empirical pattern is seen in different species of animals and birds as well.

Information Theory and Biological Communication

Bell Labs founded information theory in the 1940s. The theory is a branch of mathematics that deals with communication and the best way to communicate when there are limits in the system, the sound is transpired through. The theory is what makes it possible to understand the voice accuracy needed to send the voice signals through a telephone wire what has a set level of signal allowance.

Using the same concept of information theory in telephone wires, researchers have been doing the same with understanding the communication between stimuli and the brain. To make the concept clearer, the eyes would act to provide visual perception, which in turn is transmitted to the brain to make the decision.

There are several limits to information theory and the brain the same way there is a misjudgment in communication in a phone, or you mistake one thing for another because of what you see. To solve any discrepancies in miscommunication, researchers try to apply the law of generalization to information theory. The efficient coding of information theory is said to have the same gradient as what is predicted by the Law of Generalisation.

The realization suggests that nature provides us with perpetual expertise to evolve and upgrade our stimuli when processing information. The fining was a massive breakthrough and has a promise of offering much more than what we have seen thus far. Using mathematical laws to be able to solve problems and understand the processing of the brain means that the nature of intelligence is finally being debunked.
