Examples

  • The answer lies in the multitude of tiny modifiable connections between neuronal cells, the information-processing units of the brain.

    What are memories made of?

  • There are other properties of the brain that contribute to "g," including the speed of basic information-processing (measured by how fast people can press buttons in response to flashing lights) and even the total size of the brain (larger is better).

    The Other 'G' Spot

  • If an adult believes a fairy tale — Jack and the Beanstalk, Noah’s Ark, Goldlocks and the Three Bears, Jonah and the Whale, the Resurrection — that constitutes substandard thinking and appears to reflect an information-processing deficiency.

  • • Improve connections between nerves in the brain, thus improving attention and information-processing skills.

    Study: Physical activity can boost student performance

  • If an adult believes a fairy tale — Jack and the Beanstalk, Noah’s Ark, Goldlocks and the Three Bears, Jonah and the Whale, the Resurrection — that constitutes substandard thinking and appears to reflect an information-processing deficiency.

    The Volokh Conspiracy » 1. Science, Faith, and Not Ruling Out Possibilities

  • “It is difficult to decide whether learning styles are independent individual difference factors or if the term is merely a convenient way of referring to certain patterns of information-processing and learning behaviors whose antecdents lie in a wide range of diverse factors, such as varying degrees of acquired abilities and skills, idiosyncratic personality traits, and different exposures to past learning experiences”.

    L is for Learning Styles « An A-Z of ELT

  • Intelligent information-processing must come into existence in the Universe, and, once it comes into existence, will never die out.

    David Heddle's take on the Fine-Tuning Argument

  • One can trace the efforts to link life and geography—in the guise of what are called spatial automata—to a study by the great John von Neumann, who believed that biological organisms could be thought of as information-processing systems.

    SuperCooperators

  • They then told participants that, based on the test results, they had either a "concave" or a "convex" information-processing style, giving made-up details on each.

    Week in Ideas: Christopher Shea

  • Thus, the functioning of biological organisms as information-processing systems is of great interest to computer scientists, and we are witnessing now a fast growing research in this field.
