Cerebral systems have proper procedures, which do not possess survival value (have no vital meaning). The concept of system turns out to be a sophistication of the notion of structure. As such a system does not need to be localized but can be distributed across several brain areas. Instead, functions (like behavior, learning, and memory) are (by definition) aimed at satisfying vital needs.
