Narrative and the creation of coherency in human thought

This is something I've wondered about for many years: How do the pre-conscious pathways and signal-processing modules in our brains fuse the streams of disjointed sensory information and evoked memories into a coherent story for our consciousnesses to make decisions within? Especially since there are so many gaps within those flows of inner images from the past and the many perceived entities in the real-time external world around us.
