 Your model of brain function looks very much like the model of sensory
perception that I have described in "Neural Correlate of Conscious Phenomena".
You are essentially correct insofar as you have described perception (this
model is pretty obvious), however your model does not explain memory, emotion,
abstract thought, internal speech, or voluntary motor control.

For a full description of the neural systematics of mentation, see 
http://www.maths.tcd.ie/~rof/neuro  or the paper is also available from the
psychology preprint server(http://unix.ccsnet.com/prep).

Happy AIing.
