Intrinsic electrical properties of neurons and brain function
Present research suggests that the evolution of the nervous system addressed both the specialization of individual electrical neuronal properties as well as that of the circuits they weave. When these two variables are considered conjointly the issue of sensory input as informing vs specifying internal functional states become one of the central questions relating to global CNS function.
