How to Figure Out What You Don’t Know

Testing multiple computational models of the nervous system, researchers discover that just because a model can make accurate predictions about data, this doesn’t always translate into the underlying logic of the biological system it represents.

Increasingly, biologists are turning to computational modeling to make sense of complex systems. In neuroscience, researchers are adapting the kinds of algorithms used to forecast the weather or filter spam from your email to seek insight into how the brain’s neural networks process information.
