 dynamics of large neuronal populations, functional and structural connectivity, development and learning, robustness of system operation. Recent advances in selective recording and perturbation approaches involving large populations of neurons offer unique
 opportunities to test these predictions, challenge current interpretations of large data sets and trigger novel theoretical developments.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
