Field page: Computational Neuroscience

Description

Computational Neuroscience is concerned with an age-old question - how does intelligence work? It approaches the issue from a physiological perspective, by examining how neurons behave individually and seeing what effects develop when you wire a load of them up into a neural net. This produces some very cool emergent effects, which are extremely useful in the field of artificial intelligence.

Problem Solved

How do brains work, and what can we do with that knowledge?

Here's a book

Theoretical Neuroscience: Computational and Mathematical Modeling of Neural Systems
By Peter Dayan & L.F. Abott

Although I have not read it yet, it is considered a good starting point (graduate level) by many.

Here's a link to few more books
