The study of the brain and behavior is illuminated with the discovery of invariances.
Experimental brain research uncovers constancies amidst variation, with respect to interventions and transformations prescribed by experimental paradigms.
Place cells, mirror neurons, event related potentials and areas differentially active in fMRI, all illustrate the pervasive role of invariances in neural systems in relation to their function.
Studies the possible space of variations in structure and dynamics that maintain a given behavioral function unchanged; what are, in other words, the invariants of a given behavior Invariances are introduced first generally, then in the study of neural systems The role of empirical invariances in explanation of behavioral function is discussed and exemplified
