Diversity in the Neuronal Machine

Order and Variability in Interneuronal Microcircuits

Ivan Soltesz

The central aim of the book is to provide new insights into the striking degree of cellular diversity found in the interneuronal microcircuits in the brain's neocortex and hippocampus. It elaborates on novel ideas about interneuronal diversity that rest upon recent theoretical and experimental results concerning the developmental origins, the genetic and homeostatic regulation, and the functional roles of interneuronal heterogeneity, with arguments touching upon evolution, animal behavior and the mathematical theory of small world networks. This engaging volume is invaluable to neuroscientists and others interested in neuronal network theory; neurologists and psychiatrists working on mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric disorders; and students and trainees in all these fields.
