The last decade of the 20th century has seen the development
of cognitive neuroscience as an effort to understand how the
brain represents mental events. We review the areas of
emotional and motor memory, vision, and higher mental
processes as examples of this new understanding. Progress
in all of these areas has been swift and impressive, but much
needs to be done to reveal the mechanisms of cognition at the
local circuit and molecular levels. This work will require new
methods for controlling gene expression in higher animals and
in studying the interactions between neurons at multiple levels.
