This article examines how scientists move from physical measurements to actual observation of single-cell recordings in the brain. We highlight how easy it is to change the fundamental nature of our observations using accepted methodological techniques for manipulating raw data. Collecting single-cell data is thoroughly pragmatic. We conclude that there is no deep or interesting difference between accounting for observations by measurements and accounting for observations by theories.
