See Enlarged Below

A pathological, highly energized value system exercises powerful downward constraints upon specific, favored, cell assemblies. These in turn dictate the organization and reactivity of specific neuronal systems at the expense of a more generalized pattern of response. The process eventuates in the appearance of a specific set of “symptoms’, i.e. stereotyped and overriding neuronal responses. The symptoms then feed recursively the value system in a complex self-sustaining feedback loop.
