9780123748829: Mathematics for Neuroscientists

Virtually all scientific problems in neuroscience require mathematical analysis, and all neuroscientists are increasingly required to have a significant understanding of mathematical methods. There is currently no comprehensive, integrated introductory book on the use of mathematics in neuroscience; existing books either concentrate solely on theoretical modeling or discuss mathematical concepts for the treatment of very specific problems. This book fills this need by systematically introducing mathematical and computational tools in precisely the contexts that first established their importance for neuroscience. All mathematical concepts will be introduced from the simple to complex using the most widely used computing environment, Matlab.

This book will provide a grounded introduction to the fundamental concepts of mathematics, neuroscience and their combined use, thus providing the reader with a springboard to cutting-edge research topics and fostering a tighter integration of mathematics and neuroscience for future generations of students.



  • A very didactic and systematic introduction to mathematical concepts of importance for the analysis of data and the formulation of concepts based on experimental data in neuroscience
  • Provides introductions to linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, Fourier transforms, probabilities and stochastic processes
  • Introduces numerical methods used to implement algorithms related to each mathematical concept
  • Illustrates numerical methods by applying them to specific topics in neuroscience, including Hodgkin-Huxley equations, probabilities to describe stochastic release, stochastic processes to describe noise in neurons, Fourier transforms to describe the receptive fields of visual neurons
  • Allows the mathematical novice to analyze their results in more sophisticated ways, and consider them in a broader theoretical framework

Product Description:

Offers an introduction to the fundamental concepts of mathematics, neuroscience, and their combined use. This book alternates between mathematical chapters, introducing concepts and numerical methods, and neurobiological chapters. It includes a MATLAB code for each computational figure, to allow the reader to reproduce them.

Review:

"Mathematics for Neuroscientists by Fabrizio Gabbiani and Steven Cox (GC) was developed over 8 years of teaching courses on the topic. This experience, as well as the wide-ranging research contributions of the authors, clearly shines through?the text is a landmark for the field in its scope, rigor, and accessibility. . . .This is a hallmark of the book: elegance, completeness, and economy that leave the reader with much more mathematics and science than one might expect even in a work of this size. The book further benefits from the availability of MATLAB code provided to regenerate almost every figure. . . . This integration of code and text is by far the best we’ve seen. It brings alive the science, the mathematical tools, the models, and their implementation."?Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics SIAM Review, 2011 (Vol 53, No. 3)
