The main aim of this study is to raise and explore the intriguing problems of noise and chaos in the nervous system. It examines questions such as: what functional role do fluctuations in neural systems play?; are there chaotic processes in the brain?; what is the neural code, and how robust is it towards noise?; and are there mechanisms that can control noise and chaos?
