The Ouroboros Model

Knud Thomsen

Assuming that memories are organized in some type of schema structures, any activation of one component of an entry will trigger some expectation of other features linked in this schema. The main constituent of the Ouroboros Model then is a self-referential recursive process consisting of alternating phases of data acquisition and evaluation; an iterative monitor process termed “consumption analysis” is checking how well expectations triggered a one point in time fit with successive activations.
