29 Feb activation

Action Potential VariationsIn this blog, activation is used in two contexts:

1) excitatory action potentials as they spread in the brain; and

2) elevated values that are applied to conceptual representations as associations are traversed in an associationist network. In both contexts, activation is capable of heating up entire areas of the network (or cortex) that contain related information.
