Editorial Reviews

Papers from the July 1990 conference on [title], held in Berkeley, California present emerging modeling tools and concepts for neurobiologists, and emerging neurobiological concepts and neurobiological knowledge of potential use to technologists. Recent leaps in both computational power and knowledge of the nervous systems may have set the stage for a revolution in theoretical neurobiology, that is if the new neural modeling is directed as heavily toward understanding the nervous system as it has been toward computer technology and control-system engineering. These contribuitons address both aspects. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
