comment Why does the human brain not overfit when training at some task?
(parenthetically, I'm not convinced that we don't "overfit" at times, especially in the developing brain, but analogies between ANNs and BNNs are often stretched to the point where such shared features become muddled)

comment Why does the human brain not overfit when training at some task?
@AliceD Overfitting is when an artificial neural network captures too many extraneous features of the data during training so that generalization becomes nearly impossible. It's an interesting question, but it's unclear, I agree with both of you.

comment A request for an overview of the cranial nerves
A lot of the information that you are looking for is in the book chapter, but I can understand how it might be overwhelming. Unfortunately, anything "easier" is probably going to be too cursory and sugar-coated, so you may just have to slog through it and cherry pick what you need. Also, you're in the perfect spot to ask specific questions about the material already! :)
