In this chapter, the author reflects on some of the bright moments in the field of neuroscience. He first looks at the work of William Newsome, Anthony Movshon, and Kenneth Britten in the mid-1980s about the role of neurons in perception. He then describes Horace Barlow's study of the relation between subjective perceptions and the activity of the nerve cells in the brain, along with the research carried out by neurophysiologists such as Vernon Mountcastle, Edward Evarts, Charles Gross, Robert Wurtz, and Tom Albright.
