50 ideas to change science: Neuroscience - New Scientist - New Scientist

50 ideas to change science: Neuroscience: Cognitive control; Towards the seat of consciousness

The connectome; Mental maps

Mirror neurons; The key to how we learn and think - possibly

Top-down processing; Our past determines our present  

Neuronal recycling; Culture is a parasite          

Nootropics; Food for thought  

This "bottom-up" process represents the textbook view. In truth, we are realising that our experience is closer to a form of augmented reality, in which our brain redraws what it sees to best fit our expectations and memories.
