Closed Loop Neuroscience

"Closed Loop Neuroscience " can be regarded as a stand alone field where the brain is regarded as a set of loops interacting with itself, among themselves and with the environment in a relational manner. Over the past three years, I have worked closely with neuroscientists, computer scientists, physicists, linguists and philosophers in order to begin building the foundations of "Closed Loop Neuroscience". The first result of this hard work is gathered in a book
