Cerebral Cortex

Principles of Operation

Edmund T. Rolls

  • The book goes beyond current understanding of how the cerebral cortex operates, by combining evidence from different disciplines
  • Presents theories of operation of the hippocampus in memory, and of visual object recognition, to illustrate how the principles combine to produce theories of operation of brain systems
  • Includes comprehensive appendices that allow the reader to develop an understanding of how networks in the cerebral cortex operate, and how information theory can be used to quantify neuronal encoding
  • Describes neuronal network simulation software written in Matlab which allows readers to gain insight into how biologically plausible neuronal networks operate
