Any suggestions on how to go about becoming a researcher in this area? I have very little formal background in math and physics and will be studying this on my spare time (which means when I'm not working on the cognitive stuff, though I would love to integrate something more rigorous into my thesis), as such I require an easy introduction to this field (although I've always been very good at math). I really don't know where to start (both in terms of the math and physics) and most of what I find are mathematical models of neurons with very little reference to condensed matter physics. It would be great if the forum could offer me some guidance on this issue. Thanks a lot!
