Partial Contents: Transmitter Release Mechanisms: Relevance for Neuronal Network Functions; Modulating Membrane Properties of Neurons: Role in Information Processing.
Exploring Brain Functions Models in Neuroscience Edited by T. A. Poggio and D. A. Glaser This volume consists of the background papers and reports of discussion from the Dahlem Workshop. It focuses on the identification of appropriate models for brain functions and ways of evaluating them. A unique combination of key researchers involved in theoretical and experimental neurobiology addressed these issues from the following perspectives:Molecular and biophysical mechanisms of information processing;Forms and mechanisms of learning;Models of visual perception: case studies in brain functions; andArchitectures of intelligent systems. This book provides a timely assessment of the state of theories involving the brain and their role in neuroscience today and tomorrow, from the point of view of theoreticians and experimentalists alike.
