### Using Markov Blankets for Causal Structure Learning

· Feature selection and causal structure learning are related by a common concept the Markov blanket of a variable X is the smallest set (X)containing all variables carrying informa- tion about X that cannot be obtained from any other variable.3In feature selection this is the set of strongly relevant features that is of features which carry information about the target that cannot be obtained from any

A Markov blanket defines the boundaries of a system in a statistical sense. Here we consider how a collective of Markov blankets can self-assemble into a global system that itself has a Markov blanket thereby providing an illustration of how autonomous systems can be understood as having layers of nested and self-sustaining boundaries.

Using the apparatus of the renormalisation group we show that much of the phenomenology found in network neuroscience is an emergent property of a particular partition of neuronal states over progressively
