On Intelligence

I just finished listening to the audio book of On Intelligence. It was a decent work that defines intelligence as memory-based predictive ability.The neocortex is the main focus of On Intelligence and Hawkins' suggests that the associations contained within it allow for our navigation of the world.
Again, this would be better for those less versed in the psychological literature.

As I've taken in a lot of info this month, the cognitive resources weren't as willing to take many notes for this one. I'll mention that it was interesting to be remined of the temporal dimension to vision and the spatial dimension to hearing (the membranes inside the ear (unrolled)).
