Congenital Programs of the Behavior as the Unique Basis of the Brain Activity

Alexey V. Melkikh

Abstract


The problem of adaptation of an organism to varying environmental conditions has been considered. It has been shown that an organism cannot learn if aprioristic information about an object is absent. The entire behavior of an organism is controlled by congenital programs. New programs of behavior do not appear during the lifetime of an organism. At the same time, the estimated quantity of information necessary for control of an organism shows that genes cannot contain all this information (the problem of the number of links between neurons and the problem of the number of antibodies). Models were proposed for the behavior control of organisms, in which the stores of the congenital information are (1) the complex internal structure of elementary particles and (2) conformational degrees of freedom of proteins (not coded by genes). In the first case, a particle may represent a quantum computer with many degrees of freedom. According to this model, biologically important molecules (DNA, nucleotides, and proteins) can change their state under the control of internal degrees of freedom of an elementary particle.
