Format: Hardcover
"Neuroscience: A Mathematical Primer" by Alwyn Scott (Springer, 2002).
Submitted by: M.D. Goldfinger, Ph.D., Anatomy & Physiology Department., Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, USA;
The study of the brain - Neuroscience - is one of contemporary science's most challenging realms. It is a complex field with dimensions of inquiry available to a variety of scientific and medical fields of study. For those readers interested in neuroscience and who have a background in physical science, engineering, or mathematics, Alwyn Scott's book provides an ideal port of entry. Dr. Scott's book is a systematic `bottom-up' approach to the workings of the nervous system from the cellular to network perspectives. Each of the twelve chapters and six appendices provides a quantitatively-oriented view of the salient physical features of neurons.
Dr. Scott is a highly-accomplished scholar of non-linearities in physical systems. His scientific career includes academic and research positions in electrical engineering, computer science, and mathematics at University of Wisconsin, Los Alamos National Labs, University of Arizona, and others. In addition to these accomplishments, the author has published fundamental studies on information propagation in nerve fibers. In his book, Dr. Scott addresses neuronal function from these unique and remarkably eclectic disciplinary perspectives. He writes in terms of physical principles, using the language of mathematics and the insights of engineering. This approach is - alas - not typical in neuroscience, which is often descriptive, avoiding the underlying physical complexities.
The first nine chapters cover much of the salient biophysics of neurons.
