**Of the Evolution of the Brain**

by Allessandro Treves, Yasser Roudi

**Publisher**: SISSA 2010**Number of pages**: 50

**Description**:

We review the common themes, the network models and the mathematical formalism underlying our recent studies about different stages in the evolution of the human brain. These studies all discuss the evolution of cortical networks in terms of their computations, quantified by simulating simplified formal models.
