    I am. These guys are quite skeptical about the notion that the brain is a computer passing patterns of bits hither and yon. They don't have much of anything to say about what neurons are up to.

    Frames is a different notion entirely. The term was coined by Minsky in the 1970s, etc. Fauconnier and Turner are skeptical about Minsky.

    Are you sure they and Minsky are using the term in the same way to mean the same thing? Do you have any references that express what the various individuals have to say about that?
