Summary
The complexity of the brain and the protean nature of behaviour remain the most elusive but important area of science. The editors invited 23 experts from the many areas of systems neuroscience to formulate one problem each. Together, they provide a useful roadmap to the field

Contents
  • pt. I. How have brains evolved? Shall we even understand the fly's brain? / Gilles Laurent -- Can we understand the action of brains in natural environments? / Hermann Wagner and Bernhard Gaese -- Hemisphere dominance of brain function -- which functions are lateralized and why? / Günter Ehret -- pt. II. How is the cerebral cortex organized? What is the function of the thalamus? / S. Murray Sherman -- What is a neuronal map, how does it arise, and what is it good for? / J. Leo van Hemmen -- What is fed back? / Jean Bullier -- How can the brain be so fast? / Wulfram Gerstner -- What is the neural code? / C. van Vreeswijk -- Are single cortical neurons soloists or are they obedient members of a huge orchestra? / Tal Kenet [and others] -- What is the other 85 percent of V1 doing? / Bruno A. Olshausen and David J. Field -- pt. IV. What can brains compute? Which computation runs in visual cortical columns? / Steven W. Zucker -- Are neurons adapted for specific computations? Examples from temporal coding in the auditory system / C.E. Car [and others]
  • How is time represented in the brain? / Andreas V.M. Herz -- How general are neural codes in sensory systems? / David McAlpine and Alan R. Palmer -- How does the hearing system perform auditory scene analysis? / Georg M. Klump -- How does our visual system achieve shift and size invariance? / Laurenz Wiskott -- pt. V. Organization of cognitive systems. What is reflected in sensory neocortical activity: external stimuli or what the cortex does with them? / Henning Scheich [and others] -- Do perception and action result from different brain circuits? The three visual systems hypothesis / Giacomo Rizzolatti and Vittorio Gallese -- What are the projective fields of cortical neurons? / Terrence J. Sejnowski -- How are the features of objects integrated into perceptual wholes that are selected by attention? / John H. Reynolds -- Where are the switches on this thing? / L.F. Abbott -- Synesthesia: what does it tell us about the emergence of qualia, metaphor, abstract thought, and language? / V.S. Ramachandran and Edward M. Hubbard -- What are the neuronal correlates of consciousness? / Francis C. Crick and Christof Koch
