The Great Debate: Connectomics Anthony Movshon of NYU and Moritz Helmstaedter of the Max Planck Institute weigh in on connectomics, and whether it is the answer for modern neuroscience. Helmstaedter argues that understanding neuronal circuit structure — connectomes — is key to modeling the mind. Movshon argues that functional models that carefully analyze behavior are the key. See the two duke it out in this debate at CNS 2016 in New York, moderated by David Poeppel (Max Planck Institute & NYU).
