The stuff is all connected

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I've been working all week on a way to say something like this: "brains don't hold knowledge in chunks – it's networked. A simple task, such as picking up a pencil, requires numerous areas of the brain to harmonize their distributed activity (sometimes referred to as the 'binding problem') in order to produce the intended action. Recognizing a human face is an astonishingly complex distributed neural activity – an image of a face doesn't exist in our brains." It hasn't come to me yet, but it's really important that it be understood by educators and administrators.
