Theoretical Neuroscience: Computational and Mathematical

Theoretical Neuroscience: Computational and Mathematical Modeling of Neural Systems THE intro to computational neuroscience Theoretical neuroscience provides a quantitative basis for describing what nervous systems do, determining how they function, and uncovering the general principles by which they operate This text introduces the basic mathematical and computational methods of theoretical neuroscience and presents applications in a variety of areas including vision, sensory motor integration, development, learning, and memoryThe book is divided into three parts Part I discusses the relationship between sensory stimuli and neural responses, focusing on the representation of information by the spiking activity of neurons Part II discusses the modeling of neurons and neural circuits on the basis of cellular and synaptic biophysics Part III analyzes the role of plasticity in development and learning An appendix covers the mathematical methods used, and exercises are available on the book s Web site surprisingly cheap hurrah for the mit press i think i must acquire it Won t be able to get to this before 2010, almost certainly ARGH so much to learn
