504    Includes bibliographical references  (pages 277-335) and 
520    "Whether we realize it or not, we think of our brains as 
       computers. In neuroscience, the metaphor of the brain as a
       computer has defined the field for much of the modern era.
       But as neuroscientists increasingly reevaluate their 
       assumptions about how brains work, we need a new metaphor 
       to help us ask better questions. The computational 
       neuroscientist Daniel Graham offers an innovative paradigm
       for understanding the brain. He argues that the brain is 
       not like a single computer-it is a communication system, 
       like the internet. Both are networks whose power comes 
       from their flexibility and reliability. The brain and the 
       internet both must route signals throughout their systems,
       requiring protocols to direct messages from just about any
       point to any other. But we do not yet understand how the 
       brain manages the dynamic flow of information across its 
       entire network. The internet metaphor can help 
       neuroscience unravel the brain's routing mechanisms by 
       focusing attention on shared design principles and 
       communication strategies that emerge from parallel 
       challenges. Highlighting similarities between brain 
       connectivity and the architecture of the internet can open
       new avenues of research and help unlock the brain's 
       deepest secrets. An Internet in Your Head presents a clear
       -eyed and engaging tour of brain science as it stands 
       today and where the new paradigm might take it next. It 
       offers anyone with an interest in brains a transformative 
       new way to conceptualize what goes on inside our heads"--
