Summary

Last month, neuroscientists gathered at Boston University School of Medicine for a conference on the brain, held to commemorate the late computational neurobiologist David Marr, who pioneered theories about brain regions as varied as the cerebellum, the visual system, and the cerebral cortex. The meeting's topics were similarly diverse, ranging from the workings of the retina to computer models of the cerebellum.
