Brain is an unexcelled instrument of perception and analysis of intensive information flows and decision making. Joint achievements of neurophysiology and morphology highlight the pathways between neuronal formations of different brain regions and their functions and fine organization of relationships within these formations. However, the principles of information transmission and signal processing in such structures remain hypothetical. The structure of the network executing the function of extrapolation or prediction of input signal values is discussed. Organization of neurons in this network is compared with relationships of neurons in the cerebellar cortex. It is suggested that the considered organization of neuronal relationships and the functions executed by the network are inherent for all brain formations including the brain cortex.
