The thirty original contributions in this book provide a working definition of "computational neuroscience" as the area in which problems lie simultaneously within computer science and neuroscience. They review this emerging field in historical and philosophical overviews and in stimulating summaries of recent results. Leading researchers address the structure of the brain and the computational problems associated with describing an understanding this structure a the synaptic, neural, map, and system levels. Eric L. Schwartz is Professor of Cognitive and Neural Systems at Boston University.
