Five questions answered by Wei Ji Ma

(1) How can we find out how the brain works? I am primarily interested in understanding human intelligence, and from that point of view, I am worried about the massive move towards rodent models in neuroscience. While the abundance of available techniques makes this move attractive, there is not much evidence that rodents plan strategically, […]

(1) How can we find out how the brain works? There is a continued need for computational frameworks that interplay with experimental design and analysis at multiple levels (e.g., neurons, circuits, cognition). I have been intrigued by how neural systems represent and learn about stimuli in the natural environment, resulting in complex inferences and behavior. My […]

(1) How can we find out how the brain works? It all begins with thoughtful descriptions of the computations that the brain solves, which are often directly reflected in behavior. Ultimately, a description of “how” is formalized by a model that provides a non-trivial account of data. Crucially, while many of us have been taught […]

1 How can we find out how the brain works? We will need to continue to study the brain at multiple scales, both at the neuronal level, at the macro level (via brain imaging), and at the behavioral level. And we need to continue to bring these worlds together. We also need to start pushing brain […]
