Abstract
After the discovery of electrical phenomena in brains, which suggested recording with electrodes as the obvious approach to the problem of cerebral function, the field of neuroanatomy underwent a long period of stagnation. It is now once more an important source of information, which model makers are tapping abundantly (those who are not would be well advised to consider doing so). I will sketch a short overview of the main trends in neuroanatomy, past and present, and then try to establish something like a method for us to follow when translating the information on the structure of a brain into statements about its operation.
