The book From Brains to Systems (Hernández, Sanz, Gómez et al.) is available in bookshops.

An excerpt from the introduction:

"Science moves in little steps, but also makes its progress with revolutionary discov- eries and concepts that sweep away whole and entire edifices of thinking and replace them with new theories that explain more with less. However, there is a constant in this march, the strive for mathematisation and unification.

The extent to which reverse-engineering of brains will help with technological advance in the engineering of more robust autonomous systems is yet to be clear. Nevertheless, the different approaches offered in this book show a steady progress toward more rigorous methods of analysis and synthesis. This rigour implies that they may eventually converge into a single, unified theory of cognition: the very holy grail of cognitive science and engineering."
