We've had a lot of discussion about media arts relation to both  
perception and cognition, as well as thinking through some of the  
issues around the actual imaging processes of the neurosciences. I  
now  think it's an opportune time to introduce another dimension to  
this month's discussion in the form of Andrew Murphie.

Andrew, could you perhaps introduce yourself and say a little about  
your work in the area of the relations between cultural theory,  
cognition and new models of thought that might spring out of the  
neurosciences. What relations, for example, do you see between older  
models of cognition (already mentioned in this discussion around the  
dualism of mind/brain) and computation or digital media? Additionally,  
what can new media and new media arts do with newer perhaps more  
distributed/connectionist models of the brain?

Over to you
