This chapter examines the structure of human cerebral networks with the modern insight that the structure of mind can be read from connectional anatomy. At the same time, it searches for the dynamic controls on activity within cerebral networks to understand how the connectional anatomy develops, through continuous motivation, over the life span. The discussion covers the principles of distributed representation, representation in corticolimbic networks, the vectoral cybernetics of action, the asymmetric structure of memory, subcortical regulation of the consolidation process, and the vertical integration in the consolidation of experience.

Keywords: human cerebral networks; mind; connectional anatomy; dynamic controls; distributed representation; corticolimbic networks; memory; consolidation process; vertical integration
