A new concept of brain functions is proposed. According to it, the brain is a hierarchy of neural optimal control systems where each level possesses a dynamic model of its controlled object; this can be a lower control level in the CNS or an executive organ. The new concept of brain functions is based on the solution of the problem of central pattern generators and on the neural network computational principle. Contemporary data on the cerebellum, cortico-basal ganglia-thalamo-cortical loops… Expand

TLDR
The ability of the new conceptual brain model to explain brain mechanisms of normal and pathological behaviors is demonstrated through the examples of spinal reflexes and central pattern generators, the cerebellum, skeletomotor cortico-basal ganglia-thalamocortical loop, and Parkinson's disease and some other brain disorders.

TLDR
The ability to store a long prehistory of preceding events is considered as the mechanism that necessitated the invention of more complex and more rapid forms of learning such as operant learning, and made possible more complex multistep computational algorithms that require memorization of the results of previous intermediate computations.

Basal Forebrain Activation Enhances Cortical Coding of Natural Scenes
TLDR
Using polytrode recording in rat visual cortex, it is found that nucleus basalis stimulation caused prominent decorrelation between neurons and marked improvement in the reliability of neuronal responses to natural scenes, which improved cortical representation of natural stimuli in a complementary manner.
