Marr’s Vision and Computational Neuroscience
This chapter discusses a vision of computational neuroscience, and also addresses what has happened since the publication of David Marr’s Vision. It argues that it is now time to reemphasize the links between levels of understanding, if progress in computational neuroscience is wanted. It is believed that computational neuroscience over the past thirty years can be described as mostly exploring each level of understanding independent of the others. Some of the past research trends in computational neuroscience are explained. This brief look at computational neuroscience in the last decades indicates that significant progress has been made at each of the levels of understanding—in a sense following Marr’s prescription—though the problem is far from being solved. It argues that neuroscience can help computational theory and even computer science.
