A computational system that simulated the complete brain—i.e. the pattern of neuronal firings—of a Chinese speaker would be able to understand Chinese.

Anticipated by John Searle 1908a, 1980b, 1990b.

Also supported by the Chinese Gym Argument, Map 5, Box 5.

Note: This has also been called the connectionist reply, which claims that connectionist neural networks are not affected by the Chinese Room argument.
