      New Book on Biophysical Neural Networks Explores the Foundations of Integrative
      Neuroscience
      Story Filed: Monday, April 09, 2001 12:05 PM EST

      LARCHMONT, N.Y., Apr 9, 2001 (BW HealthWire) -- Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.,
      Publishers (http://www.liebertpub.com), announces the publication of a new
      book, Biophysical Neural Networks: Foundations of Integrative Neuroscience, by
      Roman Poznanski, Ph.D., a widely published neuroscientist acclaimed for his
      innovative approach in modeling methodology.

      The book is a comprehensive, up-to-date compendium of brain modeling methods,
      techniques, and concepts presented in an expository format. It brings together
      in one volume a new generation of biologically realistic models for the
      exploration of brain function, demonstrating the biophysical and biochemical
      processes that underpin the functioning of single neurons in networks.

      In fifteen chapters by internationally renowned neuroscientists, Biophysical
      Neural Networks examines the interface between theory and experiment at a
      multi-hierarchical level of neural organization. The book investigates the new
      field of analytical neuroscience, explains why the brain is intrinsically
      noncomputational, suggests how the Darwinian brain model can be made more
      profitable for engineers, and posits 45 research projects and unsolved problems
      to challenge scientists in the field.

      "Few books can boast such multidisciplinary approaches to neuroscience
      research," commented Dennis A. Turner, M.D., professor of neurosurgery &
      neurobiology at Duke University. "This book goes beyond current models of
      neural networks by searching for meaningful answers to realistic questions."

      Dr. Poznanski earned his doctorate in neuroscience from Australian National
      University and is currently engaged in research at the Advanced Research
      Laboratory of Hitachi, Ltd., in Saitama, Japan.

      Price of the 512-page hardcover book (ISBN 0-913113-90-5) is $129.95 plus $5.95
      postage & handling within the U.S. and $159.95 including postage & handling
      outside the U.S. A complete table of contents, list of authors, and ordering
