The edition of Current Opinions in Neurobiology on Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience that Haim Sompolinsky and I co-edited has just been published. I’m excited about the diverse and fascinating articles our authors produced, giving a snapshot of the field and an interesting view of where we are headed. Both Haim and I wove our own impressions of what we took from this collective wisdom. Check it out.
The tech world is also in the grip of a justifiably renewed excitement about artificial intelligence. It was intriguing to see so many students from tech in our Computational Neuroscience MOOC (mentioned in this article), which ended its second session last month. I’m optimistic that this increased interest and communication will help to drive discovery in fundamental neuroscience.
