Toward a Model of Functional Brain Processes II: Central Nervous System Functional Macro-architecture
Axiomathes 25 (4):377-407 (2015)
AbstractThe first paper in this pair developed a model of the nature of representation and cognition, and argued for a model of the micro-functioning of the brain on the basis of that model. In this sequel paper, starting with part III, this model is extended to address macro-functioning in the CNS. In part IV, I offer a discussion of an approach to brain functioning that has some similarities with, as well as differences from, the model presented here: sometimes called the Predictive Brain approach
