The following article appears in Frontiers of Cognitive Science today:

Roy A. (2012). "A theory of the brain: localist representation is used widely in the brain." Front. Psychology 3:551. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2012.00551

It's a very short article, just 2000 words. Here's the link to the article:


Phys.org wrote a feature story on the new theory titled: "Do brain cells need to be connected to have meaning?" Here's the link to the story: http://phys.org/news273783154.html

James McClelland of Stanford University and David Plaut of Carnegie Mellon University have long comments about the theory in the Phys.org story. I have posted a separate response to their comments on the Lifeboat site. Here's the link to the response:


I might create a separate mailing list for discussion on this topic if there is enough interest. Please drop me a note if you are interested in joining such a discussion.
