1-12 Summary

The decomposition-reconstruction method provides a logical and effective approach to studying the structure-function relationships of neuronal circuits. They are composed of local multilayered networks that interconnect globally to form neural control systems. Reflexes are the most fundamental units of neuronal circuits. Multi-input, half-fused, hybridized, mutually interacting, compounding, neuromodulating, nesting, and imitating are the eight ways to integrate reflexes into complex movements, voluntary movements, and innate behavior. A further integrated control is needed for both motor actions and, as yet to be determined, the mechanisms of cognitive thought.
