Review of Clinical and Functional Neuroscience
by Rand S. Swenson
Publisher: Dartmouth Medical School 2006
This review will discuss the cellular components of the nervous system first and then will consider the peripheral nervous system (PNS) before discussing the Central nervous system (CNS). In the CNS we will first consider the sensory systems and then motor systems before discussing limbic and higher cortical functions.

Neural ensemble recording grew into a well-respected and highly data-lucrative science. New experimental paradigms and the establishment of direct real-time brain-machine interfaces hold promise for new-generation prosthetic devices.

The workshop 'From Molecules to Minds' was organized so that representatives of all corners of the neuroscience world could provide updates on the latest advances in the field, and then discuss how they related to the concept of Grand Challenges.
The human brain has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but has a more developed cortex than any other. Despite being protected by the thick bones of the skull, the human brain is susceptible to damage and disease.

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