This study is based on the thesis that the purpose of the telencephalon is to enable an animal to make decisions in new situations. The authors propose a model for the performance of this function based on the combination of a selection system with a sensory-motor system. The elements of the model were studied in Xenopus laevis and subsequently compared with the organization of the elements in other vertebrates. This model explains the effects of forebrain lesions and experimental physiological data, and it is generally applicable. It provides a tool for understanding the brain as such as well as a framework to which other input/output functions can be attached.
