Abstract:

The aim of the study is a comparative analysis of socio-cultural, mental and cortical representations in terms of their communication in the community. This is necessary to clarify the neurophysiological factors of communication, which can be implicitly used with the use of technologies of manipulation of consciousness by the media. Methodology: interdisciplinary, system-functional analysis. The aim of the study is a comparative analysis of socio-cultural, mental and cortical representations in terms of their communication in the community. This is necessary to clarify the neurophysiological factors of communication, which can be implicitly used with the use of technologies of manipulation of consciousness by the media. Methodology: interdisciplinary, system-functional analysis. The material of the present work is the data of neurophysiological studies of mirror brain cells, discovered by J. Rizzolatti and his colleagues. Such characteristic property of mirror neurons as creation of a set of copies (imitations) intended to provide the repeated actions of people necessary for communication is accented. Based on the ideas of the American neurophysiologist R. Burton, in the concept of mirror neurons, the author highlights the problem of the basis or “matrix”, equalizing different people (to ensure their commonality and mutual understanding in communication). Using the concepts of “theory of mind”, “empathy”, “somatic marker hypothesis”, “new subjectivity” we study the debatable question of the presence of mentality in the usually unconscious, machine-like production of communicative “matrix” of many copies of generally significant forms of human perception of other people. In conclusion, a promising direction in the study of the concept of “communicative matrix” associated with the use of the concept of “disposition” is revealed.
