A Proto Neural Cognitive Architecture

Cognitive Architectures have been around since at least the 80s, and there is a pretty big community. The idea is that an architecture is the basic structure of a cognitive system (like a human), and all you need to do is write some code in the system.

I think a good architecture is neurons. However, the brain has 65 billion neurons and we don't know how they work together to implement the human (or the rat) cognitive architecture.

I've got neural rule based systems and associative memories, so I can make a proto neuro cognitive architecture. It's a big step from that to a full fledged architecture, and then it would still be an incomplete architecture.
