Topology, in its many forms, describes relations. It has thus long been a central concept in neuroscience, capturing structural and functional aspects of the organization of the nervous system and their links to cognition. Recent advances in computational topology have extended the breadth and depth of topological descriptions. This Focus Feature offers a unified overview of the emerging field of topological neuroscience and of its applications across the many scales of the nervous system from macro-, over meso-, to microscales.
