Central to the present theory is the making of connections, guided by emotion. Chapter 7 examined making connections in a close-to-experience sense, and discussed connections in the sense of similarity, condensation, and metaphor. At the level of the brain, making connections involves connections between neurons and assemblies of neurons in the brain—especially in the cerebral cortex. This chapter discusses the same event—the dream—from a different standpoint. While the last chapter took a “top-down” approach, this chapter takes a “bottom-up” approach, examining the underlying biology, and also an “in between” approach in discussing neural net modeling.

Keywords:   emotion, connections, neural net modeling
