Computations and Connectivity
Brain Computations and Connectivity is about how the brain works. In order
to understand this, it is essential to know what is computed by
different brain systems; and how the computations are performed.
The aim of this book is to elucidate what is computed in different
brain systems; and to describe current computational approaches and
models of how each of these brain systems computes.
Understanding the brain in this way has enormous potential for
understanding ourselves better in health and in disease. Potential
applications of this understanding are to the treatment of the brain in
disease; and to artificial intelligence which will benefit from
knowledge of how the brain performs many of its extraordinarily
book is pioneering in taking this approach to brain function: to
consider what is computed by many of our brain systems; and how it is
computed, and updates by much new evidence including the connectivity

Brain Computations and Connectivity provides a computational framework
for understanding brain function in health and disease. The book also
describes many discoveries on the functions of many brain
Brain Computations and Connectivity will be of interest to all scientists
interested in brain function and how the brain works, whether they are
from neuroscience, or from medical sciences including neurology and
psychiatry, or from the area of computational science including machine
learning and artificial intelligence, or from areas such as theoretical
