Systems Neuroscience

Section edited by Tianzi Jiang

This section covers all aspects of system neuroscience. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the understanding of structure and function of neural circuits, systems and networks from microscale to macroscale, how high-level cognitive functions such as emotion, memory, attention language, and self-awareness manifest on neural circuits and brain networks, and the related neurotechniques.
