I want to know how thoughts are biologicaly generated. I know that electrical impulses can trigger formed memories in the brain but what I want to know is how the electrical impulse is generated in the first place. I don't have a background in biology or neurology but I think it's probably one of the three options:
- Impulses are generated randomly at parts where there are stronger connections.
- We have loops in our neural network, electrical impulses stay and go around the brain to trigger memories and thoughts.
- We are deterministic and only react to impulses from the outside.
Any reading suggestions about this topic are also highly appreciated. I want to understand the human brain a little more to compare it to artifical neural networks.
