Summary

The various brain initiatives for producing new tools, with the goal of advancing neurological therapies, have led to widespread attention on neurotechnology. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this rapidly expanding field is the prospect of propelling experiments beyond scientific dogma to discover how the brain generates behavior. A sharper focus on this challenge will help direct the development of tools that can elucidate fundamental operations of the brain.
