After briefly introducing basic brain mechanisms and anatomy, this chapter introduces the three principles of the Neural Engineering Framework (NEF). The NEF principles of representation, computation, and dynamics provide a general method for implementing nonlinear dynamical computations in spiking neural networks. Several illustrative examples are provided. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the relevance of levels of description of a complex system to neural modeling. Tutorial: Neural representation in Nengo

Keywords:   neural engineering framework, NEF, neural representation, neural computation, neural dynamics, levels of description
