Main Question or Discussion Point
So there seems to have been many posts about how much math is required for computational neuroscience, but I don't know if anyone has raised the question of how much physics&EE is required for this field. It seems like circuit analysis is used quite extensively in modeling single neurons, but how much EE is actually needed to understand the literature? As for physics, I've seen something like Fick's law of diffusion appearing in some comp neuro and cellular physiology textbooks, but I don't know overall how much physics background is needed. So is a one-year college-level introductory physics adequate? Or is it necessary to study physics at a more advanced level (like a semester of electrodynamics and thermal/statistical physics)? Also, what textbooks would you recommend for physics&EE for comp neuro? Any advice is much appreciated.
