Summary:This book presents a new understanding of brain activity. Based on the general results of synergetics, the brain is conceived as a complex self-organizing system with emergent properties. This approach is elaborated upon by numerous explicit models that are based on and checked by detailed experiments on movement control, on various results on vision and on EEG and MEG analysis. The book provides newcomers to brain research with an introductory chapter on the experimental exploration of the brain and provides newcomers to synergetics with detailed and easy-to-read chapters on the basic concepts and theoretical tools of this field
