Highly flexible despite hard-wiring: Even slight stimuli change the information flow in the brain
"ScienceDaily (Mar. 23, 2012) — One cup or two faces? What we believe we see in one of the most famous optical illusions changes in a split second; and so does the path that the information takes in the brain. In a new theoretical study, scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, the Bernstein Center Göttingen and the German Primate Center now show how this is possible without changing the cellular links of the network. The direction of information flow changes, depending on the time pattern of communication between brain areas. This reorganisation can be triggered even by a slight stimulus, such as a scent or sound, at the right time." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The way that the different regions of the brain are connected with each other plays a significant role for information processing. This processing can be changed by the assembling and disassembling of nerve fibres joining distant brain circuits. But such events are much too slow to explain rapid changes in perception. From experimental studies it was known that the responsible actions must be at least two orders of magnitude faster. The Göttingen scientists now show for the first time that it is possible to change the information flow in a tightly interconnected network in a simple manner." - Maitani
If the circuits are so unstable, it doesn't even require external stimuli to make them switch - any perturbations and fluctuations which are constantly going on in the brain could make the circuits switch. - Björn Brembs
