This book is devoted to graduate students and researchers with different scientific background (including physics, mathematics, biology, neuroscience, etc.) who wish to learn brain science beyond the boundary of their fields.

The volume presents 12 thoroughly revised tutorial papers based on lectures given by leading researchers at the 12th International Summer School on Neural Networks in Erice, Italy, in December 2008.

The 12 invited and contributed papers presented provide primarily high-level tutorial coverage of the fields related to neuraldynamics, reporting recent experimental and theoretical results investigating the role of collective dynamics in hippocampal and parahippocampal regions and in the mammalian olfactory system. The book is divided into topical sections on hippocampus and neural oscillations, dynamics in olfactory system and behaviour, correlation structure of spiking trains, and neural network theories on associative memory.
