What is the Microscale level of organisation?
Include the biophysical level (e.g. synapitc), or the cellular level. At the start of the 20th century, microscale variation was observed in neuronal cell type, size and layer distribution by neuroanatomy pioneers such as Hammarberg (Hammarberg,

What is the Mesoscale level of organisation?
Include the activity of a single neuronal population or between populations. Here we might see populations interact

What is the Macroscale level of organisation?
From the level of brain regions and large scale pathways. Here patterns of connectivity relate to the overall function and performance of information processing

At what level do most imagining techniques discussed record from
The Macroscale: detecting populations in a given region and the summation of their signals. It is the interaction of pop.s and signalling patterns that provide us with the most info

What are the 3 main types of brain tissue?
White matter: central part, a skeleton of nerve fibres that carry signals; Grey matter: cell bodies (signals come from here); Cerebrospinal fluid: liquid padding
