Books on neuroscience

Posted by joyboseroy on October 29, 2007

Some very good neuroscience books I have connected with are as follows:

Neuroscience: exploring the brain by Bears, connorts and Paradiso. I bought this book from a second hand bookstore. Its an undergraduate level book. I liked the illustrations, lucid explanations (esp in first edition), spotlight on research techniques like FMRI and EEG, inspiring interviews with leading scholars in the field. Here is the website.

Neurophilosophy by Patricia Smith Churchland. Is got a very good historical overview of the whole field and how different fields like neuroanatomy, physiology, neuroimaging, philosophy are related and how developments in these fields reinforce each other.

Neural networks and brain function by Rolls and Treves. Its a kind of classic, showing how the NN theory links to biological data on different brain regions. Fascinating to read about how computer techniques help and are inspired by biology. Its website is this.

Fundamentals of Computational neuroscience by Trappenberg. This is so good because its so simple and un-intimidating and reasonably lucid, yet is a very good stepping stone for anyone wanting to get into the subject. Good overview of many diefferent issues and tools and branches and fields covered in the interdisciplinary area of comp neuro. The website is here.
