5.0 out of 5 stars A great discussion of information processing in the brain, 18 Aug 2007
This review is from: Spikes: Exploring the Neural Code (Computational Neuroscience) (Paperback)
Excellent book. When reading these semi-technical neuroscience books, I am usually worried that the subject matter will be out of date if more than a few years old because of the speed of advancement of the discipline. Not a chance. Although now a decade old, the ideas discussed are the same today. If you want anyway there are plenty of review papers out there overviewing more recent work. Spikes is well written, understandable and thought provoking. For anyone interested in the 'neural code' (the language of the brain), it is a must-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant classic, 1 Nov 1998
By A Customer
In this book RWSB explain in coherent terms, using basic statistical principles, how meaning is coded in the spike trains of neurons. A fascinating and fairly rigorous information-theoretic treatment of the phenomenon.
