Training workshop using our book
06/11/2012 - 09:20

Co-author Bruce Graham is using Principles of Computational Modelling in Neuroscience as the basis for a 2-day practical workshop on computational neuroscience with NEURON practical sessions that he is running for TEKBAC in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore later in June. A complimentary copy of this book will be given to each participant.

We've had our first review, by Li Shen (Briefings in Bioinformatics 13: 390-392). Here are some quotes:

This book has done a nice job of laying out their strategy for covering major topics in the field of computational neuroscience while maintaining a well-organized structure.

As a computer scientist working on analyzing human brain data at the macro-scale level and a non-expert in modeling the neuronal data at the micro-scale level, I have found this book very easy to follow and have enjoyed reading it.

In summary, this is a timely, well-written book that provides a comprehensive, in-depth and state-of-the-art coverage of computational modeling in neuroscience. It can serve as an excellent text for a graduate level course in computational neuroscience, as well as a valuable reference for experimental neuroscientists, computational neuroscientists and people working in relevant areas such as neuroinformatics and systems biology.

Website progress

The external resources section of the website is complete and we are making good progress adding code examples: there are now 35 altogether. We will be adding more over the next few weeks; when we've finished there should be over 50.

Principles of Computational Modelling in Neuroscience is published
07/20/2011 - 11:27

After more years work than the authors care to admit to, Principles of Computational Modelling in Neuroscience is now published. The official UK publication date is 29th June 2011 and the book will be available in North America as soon as stock reaches CUP's US warehouse in around 4-6 weeks time.

The  external resources section of the website is now complete. We're aiming to provide code for all the figures we generated from simulations, but it's going to take us a few more weeks before everything is available.

Ebook version now available
