The APEREST project

is the APEREST database accessible to non-members?

Suggestion: develop, and populate a '2nd' database which is devoted to
cross-correlating data with respect to Neuroanatomical 'subsystem'. maintain
'time' globally across all 'subsystems'. then your group will be able to see
how the dynamics of any 'subsystem' enter into convergence within any other

the data in this '2nd' database will disclose characteristic 'regional'
activation differences which will, further, disclose how convergence is
'parcelled-out' within the global neural topology.

in other words, don't attempt to pursue your Group's investigation via a
route that looks at the data recorded from a specific 'locus', and attempts
to make sense of it through an attribution of 'everything-in-the-data' being
attributable solely to the neural dynamics occuring at that 'locus'.

what your Group is looking for occurs as a function of globally-integrated
dynamics, but seeing it is 'confounded' by looking at it globally because
the relatively-differentiated 'subsystem' stuff is 'masked' within the
whole. it needs to be 'separated-out' while remaining 'held-together'
accross this '2nd' database.

Prediction: the '2nd' database will converge upon what's in the "Automation
of Knowing..." ms. [AoK], so i encourage your Group to use AoK as =a=

Cheers, k. p. collins
