Nervous systems are typically described as a static network passively responding to external stimuli. However, for more than a century now, evidence has been accumulating that this passive-static perspective is wrong. Instead, evidence suggests that nervous systems dynamically change their connectivity and actively generate behavior in order to control their sensory feedback.
This collection contains journal articles that contain or review empirical evidence raising issues with the passive-static perspective of brain function. The aim of this collection is to serve as a central repository for the evidence urging a rethink of the general functional principle of the brain.
