Sample text

This image is of limited duration. Let us assume that similar cells—call them ‘perception cells’ [W]— are also to be found in central projection fields of the optic nerve, where projection fibres end. 3 Lecture 3 Could this assumption—that the memory image exists in resonating excitation of such perceptual cells—be sufficient to explain the apparent difference from retinal after-images? Many things contradict this. In my experience at least, the characteristic referral to a preferred position in space is totally different from that of remembered visual images.

Such modifica- 27 tions may be acquired by each individual; they involve at least those regions of grey matter to which only reflex activity can be ascribed; they are doubtless functional as innate reflexes; and they serve protective functions even amongst humans, as in lower animals with predominantly spinal organization. Within this organization the lowest vertebrate can show more than simple reflex movements in that, like the decapitated frog, it has a capacity to make appropriate adaptations. However, where a large cerebral hemisphere is present, as in mammals, and more so in humans, we see similar mechanisms of movement transferred to central projection fields of the cerebral cortex (as shown experimentally by Munk for eye movements).

We must examine further the (arbitrary) fiction of the notional Conceptualization Centre B. As our knowledge of aphasia has developed, this preliminary term was clearly essential at an initial stage of our understanding. In the last lecture, I was able to take you back to its true meaning, but only in outline. Let me explain this allusion in more detail. As already mentioned when discussing the central projection field, we can take it as established that memory traces and ideas are localized, that is, they are linked, according to their content, with different locations in the cerebral cortex.
