In this article, we describe a mathematical model of cerebral cortical function (the so-called mean-field model). We conclude that the technique of mean-field modelling of the cerebral cortex is able to explain parsimoniously and elegantly a constellation of counterintuitive neuropharmacologic experimental data.
