If a node is "sufficiently" activated, it a. then reaches a "threshold" and then sends activation on to a subsequent stage (can broadcast to a subsequent stage); b. can inhibit all other nodes at that level (see the suggestion made for semantic-level nodes by Nickels and Howard (1994). c. may get additional activation added, as a bonus for reaching a certain level of activation (as Dell has suggested occurs at the lexical level).

More recently, neural network theory has provided a more detailed justification for this, suggesting that tasks ultimately become decomposed into subprocesses through dynamic competition in connectionist architectures (Jacobs, Jordan, & Barto, 1991; Polk & Farah, 1995). The logistics of neuronal interconnection may also predict fragmentation of neuronal processing into subsystems (Ringo, 1991). Two-Stage Characterizations In the case of visual confrontation naming, the minimum decomposition that appears to be absolutely necessary is into two parts, vision and language.

The magnitude of this random noise may be positively correlated with the node's activation level (cf. , submitted). 51 2.
