About this book

Computational Neurogenetic Modeling                                                                   Integrating Bioinformatics and Neuroscience Data, Information and Knowledge via Computational Intelligence

Lubica Benuskova and Nikola Kasabov

With the presence of a great amount of both brain and gene data related to brain functions and diseases, it is required that sophisticated computational neurogenetic models be created to facilitate new discoveries that will help researchers in understanding the brain in its complex interaction between genetic and neuronal processes. Initial steps in this direction are underway, using the methods of computational intelligence to integrate knowledge, data and information from genetics, bioinfomatics and neuroscience.

Computational Neurogenetic Modeling offers the knowledge base for creating such models covering the areas of neuroscience, genetics, bioinformatics and computational intelligence. This multidisciplinary background is then integrated into a generic computational neurogenetic modeling methodology. computational neurogenetic models offer vital applications for learning and memory, brain aging and Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, mental retardation, schizophrenia and epilepsy.  

Key Topics Include:

  • Brain Information Processing
  • Methods of Computational Intelligence, Including:
    • Artificial Neural Networks
    • Evolutionary Computation
    • Evolving Connectionist Systems

  • Gene Information Processing
  • Methodologies for Building Computational Neurogenetic Models
  • Applications of CNGM for modeling brain functions and diseases

Computational Neurogenetic Modeling is essential reading for postgraduate students and researchers in the areas of information sciences, artificial intelligence, neurosciences, bioinformatics and cognitive sciences. This volume is structured so that every chapter can be used as a reading material for research oriented courses at a postgraduate level.
