"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.
