    Mathematical introduction to neural coding and dynamics. Convolution, correlation, linear systems, Fourier analysis, signal detection theory, probability theory, and information theory. Applications to neural coding, ...
  • Quinn, William G.; Littleton, J. Troy (2002-12)
    Deals with the specific functions of neurons, the interactions of neurons in development, and the organization of neuronal ensembles to produce behavior, by functional analysis of mutations and molecular analysis of their ...
  • Adelson, Edward H.; Anderson, Barton L. (2001-06)
    How do the senses work? How do physical stimuli get transformed into signals in the nervous system? How does the brain use those signals to determine what's out there in the world? All the senses are discussed; vision is ...
