Some that I've been impressed with are those of Roger Traub
(conductance-based neuron models of hippocampal circuitry), Steven Zucker
(Artifical Neural Networks of visual object recognition) and Olaf Sporns
(ANNs of cortex, which are used to control the behavior of a mobile
"robot" in a physical environment).

Oh yes. And Arthur Murray, who's multilingual ascii diagrams are so ahead
of their time as to be well beyond my meager comprehension ;-)
