Abstract

Electrical and chemical signaling within and between neurons consumes energy. Recent studies have sought to refine our understanding of the processes that consume energy and their relationship to information processing by coupling experiments with computational models and energy budgets. These studies have produced insights into both how neurons and neural circuits function, and why they evolved to function in the way they do.
