What types of computations are performed on synaptic inputs within the dendritic trees of single neurons? In this issue of Neuron, Poirazi et al. (2003a, 2003b) present a systematic method to reduce complex, biophysically realistic neuron models to more tractable, simplified two-layered neural networks that could shed some light on this issue.
