Abstract : The document holds that the brain may be viewed as a layered computer, with long-term memory serving to ensure the correlation of sensory features in the sensory layers with output feature clusters in the motor layers which can determine action appropriate to objects in the environment; while short-term memory resides in maintained activity of output feature clusters which may be appropriate though uncorrelated with current sensory input. Slide-box and hologram metaphors are discussed. (Author)
