Brain Dynamics: An Introduction to Models and Simualtions Second Edition
This is an excellent introduction for graduate students and nonspecialists to the field of mathematical and computational neurosciences. The book approaches the subject via pulsed-coupled neural networks which have at their core the lighthouse and integrate-and-fire models. These allow for highly flexible modeling of realistic synaptic activity synchronization and spatio-temporal pattern formation. The more advanced pulse-averaged equations are discussed.
