Neural networks are the modelling medium par excellence in attempting to understand the brain and central nervous system. Firstly, the single cell is considered, a system which in its own right has a very large amount of complexity. Then the retina is studied, a very accessible but complex part of the brain. Visual processing is then the natural consequent of retinal analysis.
