Neural Networks and the Brain

  • J. G. Taylor
Part of the Lecture Notes in Biomathematics book series (LNBM, volume 4)


The purpose of my talk, as far as I see it, is to give you the initial steps we have taken so far in our understanding of the brain and the way it controls behaviour. This is a very complicated story, so I will only try to sketch it briefly; other speakers will indicate in much more detail some of the beautiful results which have been and are being obtained. In all it is a very exciting story, with the main questions still unsolved and presenting an enormous challenge to science.
