Chairs: Anna C. Nobre (Oxford University) and Marc Raichle (Washington University St. Louis)

There has been remarkable progress in the last years in the neurosciences, often driven by compelling technical developments in recording techniques, innovative analytic approaches, and new computational frameworks. But what are the big ideas that go along with the big techniques and the big data? In this symposium, we discuss some foundational themes and critical challenges that deal with the neurosciences more broadly, but especially the human neurosciences. Recent discussions in the neurosciences have been relentlessly reductionist. The guiding principle of this symposium is that there is no privileged level of analysis that can yield special explanatory insight into the... Read more.
