Molecular computation in neurons: a modeling perspective

Included here is a summary of the following article: Bhalla, Upinder S. "Molecular computation in neurons: a modeling perspective." Current Opinion in Neurobiology 25 (2014): 31-37. Introduction Chemical signaling probably accounts for a hundred times as much computation as electrical signaling. What is involved in these computations? There are over 1400 distinct proteins in the… Read More »


Concepts in Computational Neuroscience

Computational Neuroscience by Weights and States Motivation One of the simplest ways to model a neural network is to assume some basics Each neuron has a state. A neuron has input from multiple neurons. The effect is a weighted consideration of the input neurons. The network accumulates updates via a stepwise iteration of its components.… Read More »
