It embodies an accelerated-C++ version of WhiskEras 2.0, an improved version of the original WhiskEras.
"Neuroscience is the scientific field studying how the nervous system works. This involves understanding the complex properties of neurons, as entities, and neural networks. The ultimate challenge, as described by Eric Kandel, is to comprehend the biological grounds behind learning, memory, behaviour, perception and consciousness. Studying this field has expanded from molecular and cellular examination of neurons to imaging various sensory, motor and cognitive tasks in the brain. An interesting ongoing research in the field of neuroscience is observing whisker movements of rodents. Mice, like other mammals, use their whiskers to obtain tactile information regarding their environment, as well as performing other functionalities. This research can potentially lead to useful information concerning neuronal function in sensorimotor activities, in mammals."
