Books and articles about neuron attributes.

  1. Jun 7, 2007 #1
    I'm looking for information on the different kinds of neurons and their possible interactions.
    I wish to program a model of sizable amount of neurons connected to each other in the various possible ways.

    so, can anyone direct me to a good reading material?

    There is actually quite a lot of material available on the WEB. There are also *commercial* companies doing what you plan, not just research institutions. For reading material references see for example:

    I hope these help. More references, to notions such as quantum mechanics of neurons or network approach may be found in the Thinking about Thinking chapter of my e-book which can be found at http://countryofblindfolded.blogspot.com/
