About this Reference Work

The annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting (CNS) began in 1990 as a small workshop called Analysis and Modeling of Neural Systems. The goal of the workshop was to explore the boundary between neuroscience and computation. Riding on the success of several seminal papers, physicists had made "Neural Networks" fashionable, and soon the quantitative methods used in these abstract model networks started permeating the methods and ideas of experimental neuroscientists. Although experimental neurophysiological approaches provided many advances, it became increasingly evident that mathematical and computational techniques would be required to achieve a comprehensive and quantitative understanding of neural system function. “Computational Neuroscience” emerged to complement experimental neurophysiology.

The Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience, published in conjunction with the Organization for Computational Neuroscience, will be an extensive reference work consultable by both researchers and graduate level students. It will be a dynamic, living reference, updatable and containing linkouts and multimedia content whenever relevant.

About the authors

Dr. Ranu Jung is the Wallace H. Coulter Eminent Scholars Chair of Biomedical Engineering at Florida International University, where her research concerns neural engineering and computational neuroscience. Dr. Dieter Jaeger is Professor in the Department of Biology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. His research examines how neurons in the basal ganglia and in the cerebellum process their inputs, in order to understand the motor function of basal ganglia and cerebellar networks.

Reviews

“This is the best single stand alone reference concerning the mathematical and statistical modeling of neural systems and neurobiology. … The references, diagrams, in color photos, and formulae are complete. … The book should help all students and senior investigators alike. I endorse the science of this outstanding reference.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2015)
