Explicit Representation

In page 33 Koch says:

"Underlying every direct and conscious perception is an explicit representation whose neurons fire in some special manner."

I am a little confused with the explicit representation idea. How explicit are we talking? Infinitely explicit? That is, it only responds in the whole world to the represented object/concept? Or kind of explicit? That is, it responds to the represented object more robustly than to other objects? What about small assembles of cells that can represent something unambiguously (like the examples he talks about, such as motion perception in MT or face recognition in IT)? Do those count as an explicit representation?
