The higher order circuitry of the brain is comprised of a large-scale network of cerebral cortical areas that are individually regulated by loops through subcortical structures, particularly through the basal ganglia and cerebellum. These subcortical loops have powerful computational architectures. Using, as an example, the relatively well-understood processing that occurs in the cortical/basal ganglionic/cerebellar distributed processing module that generates voluntary motor commands, I postulate that a network of analogous agents is an appropriate framework for exploring the dynamics of the mind.
