Krembil Computational Neuroscience

Simulation neuroscience is a catalyst for experimental neuroscience, not a replacement.

H. Markram (Neuroscience News and Research, 2020)

Global understanding, when it comes, will likely take the form of highly diverse panels loosely stitched together into a patchwork quilt

Churchland and Abbott (Nature Neuroscience, 2016)

...we should read the words on the page or screen, not the words in our head as we read papers by other scientists and try to make sure that our own papers capture our intent.

E Marder (eLife, 2020)

Neither ignore the details nor be consumed by them... the balance is the challenge in in advancing our understanding.

Skinner and Mulloney (Current Opinion in Neurobiology, 1998)

The future will depend on stronger quantitative understanding in our experimental community and better biology intuition in our theory community.

E Marder (PLoS Biology, 2015)

Mathematics is biology`s next microscope.

JE Cohen (PLoS Biology, 2004)
