In this chapter, the author reflects on visual irredentism within the context of the brain's cortices, thalamic nuclei, and brainstem structures. He discusses the so-called binding problem in cortical neuroscience, Christoph von der Malsburg's talk about modeling collections of neurons that were bound together through an oscillation, and conventional brain theory. He also mentions his research project that focused on how neurons in the parietal cortex flashed on and off as a monkey looked around, along with the 1989 experiment with cats by Charles Gray and Wolf Singer about oscillations triggered by masses of neurons firing in synchrony. Finally, he considers two levels to vision science, the analysis of neurons and areas and the stratification of the responses of these areas into one culture of a visually inspired brain.
