If exactly one neuron magically disappeared from my brain, would my thoughts be significantly different?
One can ask an analogous question about a single neuron (and/or its synapses) being magically displaced.
I would like to know how "sensitive to initial conditions" or, rather, to fine details of structure is the activity of human brain.
This could lead to a philosophy of mind version of the old ship of Theseus philosophical thought experiment.
Has this version of the ship of theseus already appeared in the philosophy of mind literature?
