*Note for AI students or those who use computer analogy:
 The cerebellum provides a mathematical model of transformation of sensory (covariant) space-time coordinates into motor (contravariant) coordinates by cerebellar neuronal networks.

The hypothalamus makes and delivers software applications (chemicals that make little subroutines run).

If you easily answered all of these you will progress quickly, if not, take care to look up these few points and make a note about them in your Captain's log.

If you easily answered about half, you probably need to understand a bit more about some of these areas in past tutorials to make the most of future tutorials and increase your rate of progress.

If you easily answered only one or two, you may have difficulty understanding some of the material in future tutorials. Re-reading earlier tutorials will help, especially on these issues. If you feel the information is too sketchy, try the library files for related articles that might give you a better grasp of these basics.

Tsien, co-director of the Medical College of Georgia Brain & Behavior Discovery Institute with Dr. Xiaohua Cao of East China Normal University; “Genetic Enhancement of Memory” published recently in PLoS One. Tsien's work is one of the best pieces of proof so far of the LTP model, because activating the NMDA receptor clearly leads to LTP.
