The Art of Mathematical Neuroscience by Dr. Shun-ichi Amari



Mathematical neuroscience aims to elucidate the basic principles of the brain using mathematical methods. The brain has realized these principles in its circuits through a long history of evolution. Using the brilliant power of the human imagination, mathematics is a useful method to access these principles . We need to construct new mathematical theories such as information geometry to analyze brain function and tap its potential.
