Response: The intellectual thrust of our article (1) was to show the neurobiologist how a conceptual framework and methodology could be used to understand how a class of model neural circuits solve specific computational problems. In addition, we used examples of model circuit computation to illustrate the general problems neurobiologists face in understanding computation in biological neural circuits.
