Abstract:

Dramatically updating and extending the first edition, published in
1995, the second edition of The Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural
Networks presents the enormous progress made in recent years in the
many subfields related to the two great questions: How does the brain
work? and, How can we build intelligent machines?

Once again, the heart of the book is a set of almost 300 articles
covering the whole spectrum of topics in brain theory and neural
networks. The first two parts of the book, prepared by Michael Arbib,
are designed to help readers orient themselves in this wealth of
material. Part I provides general background on brain modeling and on
both biological and artificial neural networks. Part II consists of
"Road Maps" to help readers steer through articles in part III on
specific topics of interest. The articles in part III are written so
as to be accessible to readers of diverse backgrounds. They are
cross-referenced and provide lists of pointers to Road Maps,
background material, and related reading.

The second edition greatly increases the coverage of models of
fundamental neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, and neural network
approaches to language. It contains 287 articles, compared to the 266
in the first edition. Articles on topics from the first edition have
been updated by the original authors or written anew by new authors,
and there are 106 articles on new topics.

Michael A. Arbib is University Professor; Fletcher Jones Professor of
Computer Science; and Professor of Neuroscience, Biomedical
Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Psychology at the University
of Southern California.
