This book describes signal processing aspects of neural networks, how we receive and assess information. Beginning with a presentation of the necessary background material in electronic circuits, mathematical modeling and analysis, signal processing, and neurosciences, it proceeds to applications. These applications include small networks of neurons, such as those used in control of warm-up and flight in moths and control of respiration during exercise in humans. Next, Hoppensteadt develops a theory of mnemonic surfaces and presents material on pattern formation and cellular automata. Finally, the text addresses the large networks, such as the thalamus-reticular complex circuit, that may be involved in focusing attention, and the development of connections in the visual cortex. This book will serve as an excellent text for advanced undergraduates and graduates in the physical sciences, mathematics, engineering, medicine and life sciences.
