Abstract

AMIDST all the hyperbole about thinking machines that has accompanied the emergence of large-scale parallel computers from their serial predecessors, we have begun to contemplate the prospect of simulating some of our brain's massive parallelism. But one immediately runs into a role reversal worthy of a Mozart opera: the most distinctively human higher brain functions are surprisingly serial.
