Annotation:  This article is devoted mainly to the application of the modeling method in cybernetics, in particular, the simulation of machine combined with the appropriate technical means. The popularity of using the methodology of modeling the processes of human intellectual activity is emphasized, which in turn causes disputes and discussions regarding the implementation of the functions of thinking by cybernetic devices. Points of view are given according to which artificial cybernetic systems can completely simulate the thought process, which in turn is an advantage that gives intellectual power to all mankind. This fact indicates a significant expansion of the field of application of cybernetic models in the sciences of the brain. At the same time, there is an opinion about the inapplicability of this method to the study of the human brain, since thinking is a human ability, but not a machine, and the results of the study can be erroneous. The process of increasing the level of theoretical research associated with cybernetic modeling is considered. The analysis of cybernetic modeling as a tool of cognition and determination of various systems, as well as topical issues in this area is proposed.

Keywords:  modeling, model, intellectual activity, cybernetics, computing machine
