Abstract

While Chapter 2 presents the higher-level brain organization, this chapter presents a view on the low level information processing in the brain. Neuro-infonnation processing in the brain depends not only on the organization of the brain and properties of brain neural networks, but also on the properties of processing units — neurons and signal processing networks within neurons. These internal networks involved in signal processing are comprised of second and third messengers, enzymes, transcription factors and genes.
