    The Hebbian Paradigm Reintegrated: Local Reverberations as Internal Representations.Daniel J. Amit - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (4):617-626.
    The neurophysiological evidence from the Miyashita group's experiments on monkeys as well as cognitive experience common to us all suggests that local neuronal spike rate distributions might persist in the absence of their eliciting stimulus. In Hebb's cell-assembly theory, learning dynamics stabilize such self-maintaining reverberations. Quasi-quantitive modeling of the experimental data on internal representations in association-cortex modules identifies the reverberations as the internal code. This leads to cognitive and neurophysiological predictions, many following directly from the language used to describe the (...)

    Empirical and Theoretical Active Memory: The Proper Context.Daniel J. Amit - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (4):645-657.
    The context of the target article is delimited again, underlining the intended locationof the argument in the bottomup hierarchy of brain study. The central message is that collective delay activity distributions in cortical modules extend the role of a spike to an active memory of structured, learned information that can be carried across long time intervals. Moreover, the population code of the reverberations makes them readable down the cortical processing stream. Most of the critical comments are then interpreted and addressed (...)

    Is Synchronization Necessary and is It Sufficient?Daniel J. Amit - 1997 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):683-684.
    The strong coupling of binding to cross-correlations is methodologically problematic. A completely unstructured network of neurons can produce cross-correlations very similar to the measured ones, and yet they have little dynamic effect.

    Is the Time Ripe for Integration of Scales?Daniel J. Amit - 1996 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 19 (2):295-296.
    Some concepts relating to learned, structured functioning of local modules in neocortex are clarified in order to ensure that the integration from the small scale to the global attempted by Wright & Liley does not miss the target.
