The goal of brain theory is to uncover the mechanisms behind biological information processing and intelligence. One hopes eventually to understand the whole range of behavior in animals and in man in terms of the structure and operation of the neuronal circuitry of their brains. To actually create some kind of intelligent device which is the aim artificial intelligence (AI) is clearly a different goal. Yet, it is obvious that these two fields are closely related.
