Binding Problem

The binding problem, a term used for the theoretical interface point where neuroscience, cognitive science, and philosophy meet, has many different meanings. This term is then divided into two different mental phenomena; the segregation problem and the combination problem. The segregation problem addresses the method by which the the brain separates sensory input to be able to focus on separate discrete elements (such as focusing on one element in a scene). The combination problem addresses the methods by which the mind integrates objects, background and emotions into coherent experiences.
