[quote="Cairo, post:4, topic:5259"] So I wouldn’t say it is closely based on biology, but it has taken lessons to try to replicate similar results that are important in what makes intelligence. But in very different ways. [/quote]
I don’t quite agree with your statement. I’ve always said that HTM was closed based on biology, and I think it is true. You are right that HTM is not a complete similation of neurons in the neocortex. If you want that, there are other scientific endeavors attempting that simulation. We’ve never tried to to that, because we are trying to understand the _core mechanisms of intelligence in the brain_. We’ve always said that if any legitimate experimental evidence arises that contradicts HTM theory, we would have to account for it, even if it meant changing the theory to accommodate what is really happening in biology. Since 7 years I’ve worked here I have not seen that happen (although the research team has done this a lot internally before producing papers). --- [Visit Topic](https://discourse.numenta.org/t/neuroscience-verification-of-htm-theory/5259/5) or reply to this email to respond.
