# s-brain-ai-data-tool: abstract versus concrete behaviors: a hierarchically ordered connectome

a model <<  to show how the physical brain could give rise to abstract thought >>

the <<  work demonstrates (..) the basic operational paradigm of cognition, but shows that all cognitive behaviors exist on a hierarchy, starting with the most tangible behaviors such as finger tapping or pain, then to consciousness and extending to the most abstract thoughts and activities such as naming. This hierarchy of abstraction is related to the connectome structure of the whole human brain >>

Another outcome of the research <<  will be a new geometric data-science tool, which is likely to find widespread use in other fields where massive data is difficult to view coherently due to data overlap >>
