Yet, this has been well done by others in various compendia and reminiscences(Straus- field, 2012; Glickstein, 2014; Kandel, 2006; Koch, 2012). Our main goal is to evince some principles of design and note some insights that follow Stories deviating from this intention would have lengthened the book and distracted from our message, so we have resisted the natural temptation to memoir-lze Existing compendia tend to credit various discoveries to particular individuals. This belongs to the storytelling. What interest would there be to the trojan wars without odysseus and agamemnon? On the other hand, dropping a name here and there distorts the history of the discovery process-where one name may stand for a generation of thought ful and imaginative investigators. Consequently, in addition to forgoing stories, we forgo dropping names-except for a very few who early enunci ated the core principles. Nor do the citations document who did what first; rather they indicate where supporting evidence will be found-often a review Existing compendia often pause to explain the ancient origins of various terms, such as cerebellum or hippocampus. This might have been useful when most neuroscientists spoke a language based in Latin and Greek, but now with so many native speakers of Mandarin or Hindi the practice seems anachronistic, and we have dropped it certain terms may be unfamiliar to readers outside neuroscience, such as physicists and engineers. These are italicized at their first appearance to indicate that they are technical (cation channel). A reader unfamiliar with this term can learn by Googling in 210 ms that "cation channels are pore-forming proteins that help establish and con- trol the small voltage gradient across the plasma membrane of all living cel
