Abstract or Description

The conventional computational description of brain operations has to be understood in a metaphorical sense. In this paper arguments supporting the claim that this metaphor is too restrictive are presented. A new metaphor more accurately describing recently discovered emergent characteristics of neuron functionality is proposed and its implications are discussed. A connectionist system fitting the new paradigm is presented and its use for attention modelling briefly outlined.
