This volume represents the diverse but interrelated nature of computational neuroscience research. The chapters are grouped into four different levels of investigation and analysis: subcellular, cellular, network and systems. This organization allows for a non-traditional view of the literature which is typically grouped by lines of experimental subject or subsystem studied. The book focuses on the computational questions and approaches characteristic of each level of analysis. This volume is also available in a casebound edition as Supplement Number One of the series "International Review of Neurobiology".
