Freeman W. H. (2000) Brains create macroscopic order from microscopic disorder by neurodynamics in perception. In: Arhem P., Blomberg C. & Liljenstrom H. (eds.) Disorder versus order in brain function. World Scientific, Singapore: 205–220. Fulltext at
The essential task of brain function is to construct orderly patterns of neural activity from disorderly sensory inputs, so that effective actions can be mounted by the brain, a finite state system, to deal with the world’s infinite complexity. Two schools of thought are described, that characterize distinctive sources of the order within brains, one passive, the other active. These schools have profoundly influenced ways two groups of contemporary neuroscientists design their experiments and process their data, so that they have very different perspectives on the roles of noise and chaos in brain function.
