You have to know the transition rule(s) of the neuron. Transition rule(s) + input = output. Input == Internal state of the neuron + environment state where the neuron is (adjacent cells, nerves signal, chemical environment, ...) You don't have to know what the brain is feeling as a whole... because the neuron does not.
