Abstract

Understanding the way in which the brain learns, stores and retrieves information is one of the great challenges in biology. Indeed, it is far from obvious as to how best to approach this challenge, with the consequence that the experimental strategies used are remarkably diverse. As a scientist with confidence in the power of simple observation I work from the premise that actually watching the nervous system in action is likely to be fruitful. I will therefore describe what I believe to be some key considerations in determining what to observe and will use this as the basis of a presentation where I shall describe optical methodologies that may be suitable for identifying canonical coding principles of the nervous system.
