Neurons as input/output elements with intervening processing
- dendrites, soma, axon, synapse
Sensory neurons, motor neurons, interneurons
- overwhelming majority interneurons
Action as patterns of neuronal activity, implications of topographic organization of sensory, motor neurons
Locating/acknowledging the"I-function" as a distinct box
- Bipartite organization
- Input/output and significant processing can/does occur without consciousness/ "story telling"
- Consciousness/"story telling" can/does affect behavior but both derive from and must act through unconscious processes
- Frog brain and story teller have different "styles", both need to be treated respectfully and appreciatively
Can you imagine other circumstances where behavior occurs without "awareness"? How significant is this, in general? for education? In what ways is the "story teller" important? Write some thoughts/questions about the unconscious and the "I-function"/"story teller" in the institute forum area.
