The brain as interconnected boxes: autonomy, distributed signals, and an "I-function"
Welcome to the on-line forum associated with the Biology 202 at Bryn Mawr College. Its a way to keep conversations going between course meetings, and to do so in a way that makes our conversations available to other who may in turn have interesting thoughts to contribute to them. You're welcome to post here any thoughts that have arisen during the course this week (and to respond to thoughts others have posted).
Some issues worth thinking about this week is thinking about the nervous system in terms of interconnected boxes that can generate signals on their own, input and output as distributed signals, and the existence of an "I-function". Are these good summaries of observations? stories? What observations do they not incorporate? What new questions do they raise?
