About this book
Computational Neurogenetic Modeling is a student text, introducing the scope and problems of a new scientific discipline - Computational Neurogenetic Modeling (CNGM). CNGM is concerned with the study and development of dynamic neuronal models for modeling brain functions with respect to genes and dynamic interactions between genes. These include neural network models and their integration with gene network models. This new area brings together knowledge from various scientific disciplines, such as computer and information science, neuroscience and cognitive science, genetics and molecular biology, as well as engineering.

Written for Researchers in academia and industry, advanced undergraduates, graduate students in Biomedical Engineering: Bioinformatics applications across the disciplines of Computer and Information Sciences, Neuroscience and Cognitive Science, Genetics and Molecular Biology, Bioengineering and Engineering.
