In Computational Neuroanatomy: Principles and Methods, the path-breaking investigators who founded the field review the principles and key techniques available to begin the creation of anatomically accurate and complete models of the brain. Combining the vast, data-rich field of anatomy with the computational power of novel hardware, software, and computer graphics, these pioneering investigators lead the reader from the subcellular details of dendritic branching and firing to system-level assemblies and models.
