- Neuronal Dynamics: From Single Neurons to Networks and Models of Cognition
- What happens in our brain when we make a decision? What triggers a neuron to send out a signal? What is the neural code? This textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students provides a thorough and up-to-date introduction to the fields of computational and theoretical neuroscience.
- Light, Dark: The Neuron & the Axon
- Textbooks tell us the human nervous system is the most sophisticated and complex information processing system in the known universe, which operates at the speed of light as it coordinates, regulates, and controls our various organic functions.
- Spiking Neuron Models: Single Neurons, Populations, Plasticity
- This introduction to spiking neurons can be used in advanced-level courses in computational neuroscience, theoretical biology, neural modeling, biophysics, or neural networks.
- Foundations of the Neuron Doctrine (History of Neuroscience)
- For a century, the neuron doctrine has been the basis for our concepts of nervous organization and brain function.
