The Model in Use

The following diagram represents the connections between the brain’s operational mental functions. The following symbols are used:

T: transposition zone in which sensations (visual, auditory, tactile, inertial, etc.) are turned into information enabling mental processing by means of specific MMs

L: interface zone between the mental commands of movement and transmission to the muscles

S: storage of information in memory PA1: principal agent 1 PA2: principal agent 2 AGx: agent with operational function ‘x’

Outlined areas are those in which the CFs are active (Figure 4.1). In this diagram, it is clearly impossible to deal with events chronologically. All

relevant elements are there, but in a timeless way. As we shall see, it is the CFs that enable this temporal processing.
