For those of us who wish to get current on the state of the art in
neuroscience (instead of disintegrating into a billion irrelevant
discussion fragments without any ties to reality; thus reinforcing the
classical dysfunctional CryoNet behaviour pattern) should check out
the following recent review in the Science magazine:

"Neuroscience: Breaking Down Scientific Barriers to the Study of Brain
and Mind" by Eric R. Kandel and Larry R. Squire

Volume 290, Number 5494, Issue of 10 Nov 2000, pp. 1113-1120. 

Same volume also contains the following very worthwhile articles:

Since you're at it, may I point out that Volume 290, Number 5496,
Issue of 24 Nov 2000 is a nano special? (Containing many interesting
contributions by one Robert F. Frei.., sorry: Service).
