Structure-function relationships, abstraction layers and resilience. Beyond the notion of redundancy in distributed brain systems, hypothesis of the existence of abstraction layers, that is, a neural code, contributing to resilience, involving a partial virtualization of the functional architecture underlying cognition (see text).
