The Mystery of the Brain has inspired many bright minds over the past century. A product of natural evolution, the brain remains unbeatable by any man-made machine. The structural complexity and the dynamics of neural network self-organization require multimodal and multidisciplinary approaches providing information at all possible spatiotemporal scales. Sophisticated mathematical tools are a "must" in the path of processing and understanding such multidimensional data, but are currently utterly insufficient in providing true "brain-analogs" in a formal language, or models for driving robots! Data acquisition remains the only promising path, and not surprisingly we have been witnessing massive and impressive developments of experimental tools permitting a direct access to the brain's mass. This symposium aims to present, discuss and enthusiastically promote multimodal approaches for tackling the Brain-Mysteries.
