The article calls attention to complex dynamical phenomena in artificial neural systems, which are - as is asserted - of relevance also for understanding biological brain functions. Examples of various dynamical effects (hysteresis, oscillations, deterministic chaos, synchronization and coherence) are discussed in terms of the discrete dynamics of small recurrent networks. The relevance of a dynamical systems approach for understanding the emergence of higher level information processing or cognitive abilities of biological and artificial neural systems is discussed.
