Does Neuroscience Need Mathematics? And vice-versa?
David TermanTo a mathematical biologist, the answer to both of these questions is (no surprise) 'of course'. The brain is after all an extremely complicated network with hundreds of billions of neurons interacting in highly nonlinear ways, generating complex firing patterns that depend nontrivially on parameters. How can one possibly understand mechanisms underlying those pa...
