Brain, as an intelligent solution for complex environments, is sculpted by nature through the evolutionary process. Considering brain as an example of intelligent systems, we reveal possible computational mechanisms underlying cognition functions such as learning, memory and decision making, by analyzing data from neuroscience experiments, mathematical modeling as well as computer simulations, in order to develop theories and brain-inspired algorithms for machine intelligence.
