These examples reveal how and when neural systems stabilize during development, and demonstrate that the mature system preserves considerable plasticity. New accounts of basic mechanisms, such as temporal input chunking, association formation via cascades of local connections, and filling in cortical regions by competitive surround activity, unify different areas of research, and suggest novel techniques in rehabilitation.
