There is an idea that the brain functions like a computer. Based on what you’ve read so far, which brain functions do you think would computers be the best at imitating? What about the worst at imitating? Based on the information that I've read so far; I feel that the Occipital Lobe would be the brain function that computers would be best at imitating. The superior temporal sulcus, the anterior/ inferior cortex, and fusiform face area of the temporal lobe/ amygdala. All are responsible for the function of telling the looks of objects and people apart. The process of determining dissimilar looks in the brain is referred to as the "sum of parts perception." In the early stages of the Occipital Lobe, recognition of certain facial features like the nose and mouth become apparent. This resembles the face recognition found in the Windows operating system. It also is like the security system on the computers that can detect your fingerprint.
