"We are examining the activity in the cerebral cortex *as a whole*. The 
brain is a non-stop, always-active system. When we perceive something, the 
information does not end up in a specific *part* of our brain. Rather, it 
is added to the brain's existing activity. If we measure the 
electrochemical activity of the whole cortex, we find wave-like patterns. 
This shows that brain activity is not local but rather that activity 
constantly moves from one part of the brain to another." 

Not looking very charitable to the bottom-up, neuron machine view.
