Abstract and Keywords

This article aims to examine the possible relation between neuroanatomy and cosmology. It describes brain-wiring optimization and suggests that such extreme neural network organization is a prerequisite for brain functioning, and it states that it is possible that other set of brain-enabling conditions of the universe exist. It also discusses the relation between brain-wiring minimization and optimization landscapes and between brain-wiring optimization and the anthropic principle.

Keywords: neuroanatomy, cosmology, brain-wiring optimization, brain-wiring minimization, brain function, neural network, anthropic principle
