It is suggested that the cerebral cortex is made up of many non-overlapping units which are regulated by the thalamus in such a way that just a few of them are "on" at a time. How these units are built up and by which neurones is discussed in some detail. Explanations are proposed for some psychiatric and neurological disorders. Furthermore, two memory mechanisms are discussed briefly.
