[A] rhizome is not amenable to any structural or generative model.
— Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus (2)
What can models (of the brain) do?
When and how are they updated by design?
Can they be constructive rather than representational?
In contrast to centered (even polycentric) systems with hierarchical modes of communication and preestablished paths, the rhizome is an acentered, nonhierarchical, nonsignifying system without a General and without an organizing memory or central automaton, defined solely by a circulation of states.
