Tom Anastasio via Gary --

Thanks much, Tom. In the end your battles may be our battles, so
let's keep an eye out for each other's work. I'm always hoping
that a neurophysiologist will take one of our models and say
"Well, I've never seen any arrangement exactly like that, but
there are some paths that go THIS way and interact with THOSE
signals and THEN get to this output function, and maybe if they
perform the right functions the result would be equivalent to
your diagram." Our control models are just a "canonical" diagram,
and there are many other arrangements that would be described by
the same equations.
