It might seem at first that because little is known specifically about how these elements work or how they are interconnected, then little could be inferred about the overall behavior of the system of elements we have focused on. But there is increasing theoretical evidence that some very general inferences can be made even about the behavior of what seems to be such a relatively unconstrained system. Neural networks, particularly those with self-feedback, tend to have certain preferred states of activity (Hertz, 1995; Wang & Blum, 1995).
Note that in this conception, simple frequency of exposure may not be the only determinate of convergence speed. Timing of exposure, spacing of exposures, and other variables known to influence memory at the synaptic level are all likely to be codeterminants of the efficacy of connections and the tuning of the network (Kandel & Abel, 1995). As a result, it is easy to see why age-of-acquisition might be a powerful determinant of the "strength" of nodes. Mutual inhibition, noise "clean-up," and "winner-take-all" dynamics are often viewed as necessary and related behaviors.
