Neuroscience has increasingly polarized during the past decade. The narrowly focused searchlight targeted at the domain of microscopic components unmasked small details. As a result, molecular neurobiology has prospered. In turn, system neuroscience underwent a re-evaluation of its scope, its mathematical methods, and even its philosophical and theoretical foundation. The direction in which this broad searchlight should be targeted in order to illuminate overall neural net function has been questioned. A trend toward clarification has only recently started to unfold, under intense pressure from technologic implications in the quickly developing field of microcomputing. Research on neurocomputing aspects of gaze may thus significantly contribute to a rejuvenation of system neuroscience as it meets some important challenges.
