Introduction to the epistemology of the brain: Indeterminacy, micro-specificity, chaos, and openness

Topoi 11 (1):45-57 (1992)
Abstract
  Given that the mind is the brain, as materialists insist, those who would understand the mind must understand the brain. Assuming that arrays of neural firing frequencies are highly salient aspects of brain information processing (the vector functional account), four hurdles to an understanding of the brain are identified and inspected: indeterminacy, micro-specificity, chaos, and openness
