The complexity, apparent stochasticity, and sheer scale of the circuitry of the brain and the behaviour it expresses may well pose unique challenges to our capacity for mathematical description. Real progress will depend on maintaining strong links between the mathematical and empirical communities. As such, our goal in this meeting is to bring together mathematicians and neuroscientists with a shared focus on how mathematical tools can be brought to bear on understanding the function of the system.
