Overview

The brain takes incoming sensory data, encodes them into various biophysical variables such as the membrane potential or neuronal firing rates, subsequently performs a large number of ill-specified operations to extract relevant features, and sometimes stores the computations for later access to control the motor output of the animal. Koch (computation and neural systems, California Institute of Technology) examines in detail the biophysical mechanisms by which it does so. Suitable as a graduate or undergraduate textbook or a reference in the neurosciences, engineering, and physics. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
