Re: [xmca] Plasticity and Physiotherapy
Yes, though the elmination of neurons would induce basic circuitry change
too, by removing noise from the system for instance. Irrespective of the
scientific validity, it doesn't equate to a static model. Whilst even
considering an unchanging circuit, there is still plenty of room for
changing behaviour. Part of the problem here is what constitutes the
circuit that implements changeable behaviour. It's perfectly possible to
implement many interacting levels of 'soft' circuits within a 'hard'
