LB Summary: The following analogy explains how LB sends information about different conditions to VP in summarized form, in which it translates condition information to VP:
There is a set of 4 lights. If lights 1 & 2 are on and 3 & 4 are off, it indicates condition "a". If light 1 is on and 2, 3 & 4 are off, it indicates condition "b", and so on. In other words, different light patterns denote different conditions. LB uses its parallel processing capabilities to encode such summaries, where the analogy of lights is neurons in the brain.
Whenever LB wants to send summary of a particular condition to VP, it encodes it in patterns as mentioned above, which is decoded by VP as such condition, which it does by matching the same with data that was stored in past occurrences of the same condition.
As the data (either sensory or intramural) received by LB may not be in its full form, it is matched with the existing data using its pattern matching capabilities (which is known as Gestalt Effect) to evaluate the percentage of match, which is passed on to VP as confidence level to be considered while making judgements.
All information in the brain is encoded and decoded in this manner.
With millions of neurons and trillions of connections between them in the brain, there is no scarcity of conditions that can be stored this way.
