Professor Edmund Rolls' 15th book, "Brain Computations: What and How", published by Oxford University Press

Professor Edmund Rolls is pleased to announce the publication of his 15th book "Brain Computations: What and How" by Oxford University Press.

The aim of this book is to elucidate what is computed in different brain systems; and to describe current computational approaches and models of how each of these brain systems computes. Understanding the brain in this way has enormous potential for understanding ourselves better in health and in disease. Potential applications of this understanding are to the treatment of the brain in disease; and to artificial intelligence which will benefit from knowledge of how the brain performs many of its extraordinarily impressive functions.

This book is pioneering in taking this approach to brain function: to consider what is computed by many of our brain systems; and how it is computed. Details can be found here. Professor Rolls notes that the research described in this book has high impact in terms of citations (see here for more information).
