"This paper presents a computer model of cortical broadcast and competition based on spiking neurons and inspired by
the hypothesis of a global neuronal workspace underlying conscious information processing in the human brain. In the
model, the hypothesised workspace is realised by a collection of recurrently interconnected regions capable of sustaining
and disseminating a reverberating spatial pattern of activation. ..."
