Neural network : The structural arrangement of all neurons (Waldeyer, 1891) and their connections in a nervous system (Monro, 1783). A neural network has a set of nodes and the connections between them and other parts of the body like muscles and glands. A complete neural network can be distinguished from a neural subnetwork, which is an arbitrary subset of the complete neural network, often distinguished on functional grounds.
