Abstract

Advances in the neurosciences have revealed the staggering complexity of even “simple” nervous systems. This is reflected in their function, their evolutionary history, their structure, and the coding schemes they use to represent information. These four viewpoints need all play a role in any future science of “brain complexity.”
