Now go back to star 2 with the dark segment and mirror reflect (M) star 2 about the dotted line so that star 2 now matches star 3. If I remove the dark segments, then we see that star 2 has been mirror reflected into star 3. You can continue to alternate these R’s and M’s as indicated and get back to star 1.

The results of Xiao were striking when time evolutions of the trion model firing patterns were mapped onto various pitches and instruments, producing recognizable styles of music [7]. This gave us the insight to relate the neuronal processes involved in music and abstract spatial-temporal reasoning. We proposed that the key component of spatial-temporal reasoning was the ‘‘built-in’’ ability of the columnar networks to recognize the symmetry relations among cortical firing patterns in a sequential manner (see Chapter 8).

Presents an immediate and running score as the children proceed to play this reasoning game. This is an important element.
