Abstract
Naturally, neuroscientists look at the brain from the outside when measuring how the flow of information unfolds over space and time. A neuron, on the other hand, can only 'see' through its connections, and they are spatiotemporally limited. Hence, the neural processing hierarchy from the neuroscientist's perspective and the hierarchy from the perspective of individual neurons do not agree. In order to understand the brain, only the neurons' perspective matters, thus demanding a change in the neuroscientists' perspective.
