Emerging principles governing the operation of neural networks.

  title={Emerging principles governing the operation of neural networks.},
  author={Peter A. Getting},
  journal={Annual review of neuroscience},
A basic tenet of neuroscience is that the ability of the brain to produce complex behaviors such as sensory perception or motor control arises from the interconnection of neurons into networks or circuits. Finding out how neural networks are organized and understanding what com­ putational principles underlie their operation remain challenges to modern neuroscience. Advances in anatomical, biochemical, e1ectrophysiological, and computational techniques have provided the tools to begin… CONTINUE READING
