The Hippocampal System as the Cortical Resource Manager: A Model Connecting Psychology, Anatomy and Physiology

Coward, L Andrew


A model is described in which the hippocampal system functions as resource manager for the neocortex. This model is developed from an architectural concept for the brain as a whole within which the receptive fields of neocortical columns can gradually expand but with some limited exceptions tend not to contract. The definition process for receptive fields is constrained so that they overlap as little as possible, and change as little as possible, but at least a minimum number of columns detect...[Show more]
