Consciousness Studies/Models Of Access Consciousness

There have been numerous attempts to model reflex and access consciousness. These models, being connectionist and information systems based, do not model phenomenal consciousness but are essential steps in understanding global brain function.

Neural networks achieve information processing by establishing connections between processing units in a system of processors that have similar characteristics. Neural networks are used for classifying data. The processing units serve the function of both filtering and storing information.
