Brain Function: From Experimental and Computational Neuroscience to Brain Engineering

About this Research Topic

The brain and its neural circuitry are among the most complex and perplexing natural systems. A main question in neuroscience is how such complex systems processes the incoming multisensory as well as stored mnemonic information to direct behavior, and how one can model, replicate and even repair the function of this system. In recent decades, various pieces of the puzzle from sensory, cognitive and motor domains have been extensively studied, analyzed and modeled in different biological and animal models.

This Research Topic is intended to cover recent directions and activities in the field of neuroscience dedicated to modeling the neural mechanisms of brain function.

We welcome submissions of different research methodologies: from systems/cognitive and computational neuroscience to neuroimaging and neural engineering. Original research and review, as well as theoretical work, methods, and modeling articles are welcomed. The research work includes experimental studies using state of the art in electrophysiology and neuroimaging as well as experimentally-based computational or theoretical work and biologically inspired neural networks.


Keywords: electrophysiology, neural engineering, computational neuroscience, signal processing, neural networks


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
