Abstract: In order to provide the theoretical framework necessary to study the neural mechanisms underlying languages, we present here a mathematical formalization of some neural behaviors. In such a context: (i) the neuron is defined as a coupling of automata, dealing with the transduction and codifying processes; (ii) the coupling between neurons is measured by a membership relation defined as the ratio between the transmitted and the system entropies; (iii) the attention given to the messages arriving at the system is considered as the difference between the couplings of the excitatory and inhibitory pools of neurons; (iv) the graphs in the neural systems are described by means of these couplings and, finally (v) the semantic productions are described by the fuzzy formal languages accepted by the automata formalized on these graphs. In such a way, both the verbal and neural semantics can now be correlated and experimentally investigated. © 1980.
