By using the time course of changes in the level of cortical neuronal freedom, the author determined the reflection of intracerebral processes of systemic behavioral quanta in the neural impulse activity during cyclic instrumental behavior of cats. A direct relationship was found between the duration of behavioral stages determining the final operant activity of the animals and the number and duration of cerebral integrative performance quanta, the number of decision-making stages, the durations of afferent and efferent synthesis stages. The study indicated that afferent synthesis predominated over efferent one.
