COGNITION

 

 

Cognition involves patterns of neural activity, processing takes place through the propagation of activity via excitatory and inhibitory connections. Learning and memory arise primarily through the modification of connections.

How is this organized? “some investigators arguing that particular brain regions carry out distinct, encapsulated processing operations while others suggest that each region contributes in a particular way to a distributed, interactive process.”
