From Cells to Systems: Logos and Metalogos

Neuroscientists study various anatomical, physiological, and functional components of nervous systems to better understand how the “low-level” activity of individual cells maps to behavior. In this research process, massive amounts of complex data are collected, but technology has not yet provided systems which integrate this information to help scientists analyze, visualize, and understand the data.
