Bonjour

Patterns are formed by the ensemble of neurons as they rise into activity, respond to each other and to environmental stimuli, and then fade away, creating a 'cocktail party' of chatter in the brain

Des schémas sont constitués par l'ensemble de neurones lorsqu’ils s’activent, se répondant entre eux et aux stimuli environnementaux, et disparaissant, créant un « cocktail » ????? de bavardage dans le cerveau ????????

Merci

    Keep in mind here that "a cocktail of chatter" is a metaphor, there is not actually a cocktail party going on in the brain. So try to translate accordingly.

    I agree about the metaphor. The idea of "mélange" is correct, however I see it more as an "explosion" - une "explosion de bavardage" or perhaps something like that. In any case, "cocktail party" means that there is a lot going on.
