Scholarpedia is the open access encyclopedia hosting "Encyclopedia of

Computational Neuroscience" and "Encyclopedia of Computational

Intelligence". It attempts to partner the authority and responsibility of a

printed encyclopedia with the dynamism and timeliness of a wiki.

The goal of Scholarpedia is to invite today's best scientists to write

on the topics of their expertise, so that these articles are maintained by

the future generation of experts, say 50 years from now. For some articles,

an election is organized, and users vote for whom they consider the most

fitting author.

We have recently initiated an election for the article entitled

This very important article will define the field of neuroscience, and

serve as a portal to the subfields of neuroscience and to the many

crossdisciplinary fields. As of now, four authors were suggested:

Rodolfo Llinas (NYU)

Dale Purves (Duke)

Larry R. Squire (UCSD)

Eric Kandel (Columbia)

See http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Neuroscience

To find the best author, we need to make this election as interesting as

possible, and thus, your suggestions and nominations are very welcome.
