For example, a hypothesis of this sort might be that everything that happens in the brain must be self-driven. One way for things to be self-driven would be for a drive neuron to broadcast to multiple afferent and efferent neurons such that when the simultaneous activation of the afferent/efferent pair that satisfies the drive occurs synaptic strengthening between the two would result. And maybe the inverse for inhibitory action.

This kind of overarching theory (after including hardwiring, nesting, and other topologies of such a basic functional unit) might provide a possible framework for the evolution and operation of virtually all brain modules. It might account for the mechanisms of learning, memory, attention, and even confabulation/intuition/dreaming within those modules.

If not a theory similar to this is there another broad theory? Is this what's missing from our understanding of the brain?

The only possible overarching theory is Platonism, as implemented by Leibniz, which includes the sine qua non
of the self (Self or Mind or the One). That makes subjectivity possible. The brain does not create the mind, rather, mind plays the brain like a violin.

Consciousness is what is produced mentally during perception.
In perception, physical sensory nerve signals are converted by Mind
into conscious experience or awareness. Leibniz calls this awareness
(consciousness) apperception.

Note: Beware of the Stanford Leibniz site, which is not Platonist, while Leibniz was a platonist.,

Dr. Roger B Clough NIST (retired, 2000).

Well, as far as the concept of MIND goes -- and not brain, because that is something else entirely -- the Huna's of polynesia have mapped it to quite a precise extent. So much so, in fact that they were able to regularly perform acts so profound that they are commonly referred to as miracles. If you are interested in learning how the mind and consciousness are structured, check out books by Max Freedom Long. Totally brilliant ; )

There're already email papers upon the advancement of the brain theory, which owned an IP in my opinion. But just a theory is not significant enough, even with some evidence, proof is also very important.

Most advanced subtheory is on the memory storage method, which could be combined with the data flow in the area of Auto Intelligence research.

I'm not a prof, but I hope this would work.
