About this book

Introduction

This book shows how to develop efficient quantitative methods to characterize neural data and extra information that reveals underlying dynamics and neurophysiological mechanisms. Written by active experts in the field, it contains an exchange of innovative ideas among researchers at both computational and experimental ends, as well as those at the interface. Authors discuss research challenges and new directions in emerging areas with two goals in mind: to collect recent advances in statistics, signal processing, modeling, and control methods in neuroscience; and to welcome and foster innovative or cross-disciplinary ideas along this line of research and discuss important research issues in neural data analysis. Making use of both tutorial and review materials, this book is written for neural, electrical, and biomedical engineers; computational neuroscientists; statisticians; computer scientists; and clinical engineers.

  • Presents innovative methodological and algorithmic development in statistics, modeling, control, and signal processing for neural data analysis;
  • Includes a coherent framework for a broad class of neural signal processing and control problems in neuroscience;

Reviews

“This is a short monograph on the computational neurosciences of single and populations of neurons. … This serves as a reference for advanced engineers and mathematical neurobiologists primarily. Dayan's Theoretical Neuroscience, and Neural Engineering by MIT Press are useful for more background material. Brain Machine and Brain-Computer interfacing is also considered here.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2018)
