Neural network research often builds on the fiction that neurons are simple linear threshold units, completely neglecting the highly dynamic and complex nature of synapses, dendrites and voltage-dependent ionic currents. This single-authored textbook focuses on the repertoire of computational operations available to individual nerve cells.
1. The Membrane Equation
Each chapter ends with a recapitulation of the material presented. The ultimate chapter presents a summary view of "neuron-style" computation and a list of strategic questions for research.
