"The *binding problem* is one of a number of terms at the interface 
between neuroscience and philosophy which suffer from being used in 
several different ways, often in a context that does not explicitly 
indicate which way the term is being used."

I have(finally) finished my review of the Neural Binding Problem(s) . It 
is in press, but a preprint is available at:
and a video of a recent talk on the work is at: 

As always, feedback is invited- Jerry F.

Abstract: The famous Neural Binding Problem (NBP) comprises at least 
four distinct problems with different computational and neural 
requirements. This review discusses the current state of work on General 
Coordination, Visual Feature-Binding, Variable Binding, and the 
Subjective Unity of Perception. There is significant continuing 
progress, partially masked by confusing the different versions of the NBP.
