What It Is and Why We Need It
This chapter explores the nature and meaning of local brain states that must be brought together when trying to apply our everyday concept of dynamic coordination to the brain, along with the nature of meaningful structural relationships and how they are learned by the brain. It also discusses the role of focal attention, how the brain evaluates its current level of coordination, how brain states address goals, the nature of our environment’s statistics and how it is captured by the brain, and the mechanisms that endow brain dynamics with a tendency to fall into coordinated states.
