From Bradford Books:
The Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks
Second Edition
Edited by Michael A. Arbib

Dramatically updating and extending the first edition, published in 1995, the second edition of The Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks presents the enormous progress made in recent years in the many subfields related to the two great questions: How does the brain work? and, How can we build intelligent machines? Once again, the heart of the book is a set of almost 300 articles covering the whole spectrum of topics in brain theory and neural networks. The first two parts of the book, prepared by Michael Arbib, are designed to help readers orient themselves in this wealth of material. Part I provides general background on brain modeling and on both biological and artificial neural networks. Part II consists of "Road Maps" to help readers steer through articles in part III on specific topics of interest.

Michael A. Arbib is University Professor; Fletcher Jones Professor of Computer Science; and Professor of Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Psychology at the University of Southern California.
