Neuroscience achieving insight from code-breaking

The Enigma machine and de Bruijn sequences inform neuroscience analyses, including quotes from Josh Gold and Geoff Aguirre.

The Penn scientists have taken their cues from a 73-year-old algorithm that British code-breaker Alan Turing used to read secret German messages during World War II, and a mathematical sequence more famously used to break into digital keypad locks on cars.
