For nonlinear dynamic modeling they use Neural Networks as a model of the brain.
There may be similarities as there are similarities between Neural Networks and the brain, but they are "quite different from the brain in terms of structure" and functionality.
Neural Networks were suggested as a model of consciousness in many papers, though in many of them just as approximation, but it is in many ways a wrong approximation, when the processes inside the neuron are anything like Neural Networks. (Also the Neural Networks don't model obvious changes in structure based on structure, like it was found to happen when new neurons replace the damaged areas of the brain.)
The only category where absolutely dynamic systems go is artificial consciousness, unless there would be a category "absolutely dynamic systems" under AI.
