Each point represents a state space allowed by the network; in between them is the empty space of patterns of activity that cannot occur. What is also likely in such networks is that there are clusters of points; that is, allowable activity states that are similar to some others (see Figure 5). It is also true of such dynamical systems that patterns of activity that are imposed on the network from outside will ultimately have to settle into the points or clusters that are allowed by the intrinsic network dynamics.
What this line of reasoning does require is that at least a fair number (comfortably more than one) of neural-processing units are required to make up a representation. This seems to certainly be true, at least for the codes involved in object identification, semantics, and word retrieval. In face recognition, direct neuronal recordings in monkeys have suggested that as few as 14 nerve cells could code for the discrimination of as many 54 Barry Gordon as 50 distinct faces (Abbott, Rolls, & Tovee, 1996).
What, then, has been learned? , 1991a; Theios & Amrhein, 1989; Tippett & Farah, 1994). There have also been several recent reviews of naming disorders (Goodglass, 1993; Henderson, 1995) and of the neuroanatomic underpinnings of naming processes (Goodglass, 1993; Henderson, 1995; Tranel & Damasio, chap. 3, this volume). 2.
