The article examines the role of the spontaneous activity of neurons, and therefore, of brain neural networks, in information processing. Analysis of the spontaneous activity of neural networks is based on data obtained during neurosurgical operations conducted by W. Penfield. The case of frequentative electrode stimulation of the human brain temporal cortex and the patient simultaneous interview were analyzed. Such a survey revealed that the irritation of a specific localization caused the actualization in a person memory of an episode of her past according to this localization. The analysis of the spontaneous activity of neural networks of the brain is based on comparing the conditions of conducting this experiment, in which the actualization of long-term memory occurs artificially that is, with the help of electrode stimulation of the corresponding neural networks (and therefore guaranteed not spontaneously), with the conditions for actualizing long-term memory during the natural processing information in neural networks of the brain.
This analysis made it possible to form a hypothesis and draw conclusions that, first, the spontaneous activity of neurons and neural networks of the brain is an indispensable condition for the actualization of long-term memory so that it is involved in the regulation of expedient human behavior, and, second, the phenomenon of spontaneous activity of neurons proved the impossibility of processing information in the brain without the participation of mental phenomena, at least representations that actualize personal experience (information) for further use.
