cracking the neural code

Is the brain an "Artificial Neural Network"? For years it has been almost a religious dogma that the neural network computation used by brains is radically different from what works in engineering and technology. Yet even as governments pour huge investments into brain-computer interface, it has been like recording hieroglyphics which no one could begin to read. We have now taken the "first" steps towards decoding the neural code (building on work by people like Barry Richmond of NIH), supporting a different kind of model of brain dynamics and consciousness.
