Of the Evolution of the Brain
by Allessandro Treves, Yasser Roudi
Publisher: SISSA 2010
Number of pages: 50
We review the common themes, the network models and the mathematical formalism underlying our recent studies about different stages in the evolution of the human brain. These studies all discuss the evolution of cortical networks in terms of their computations, quantified by simulating simplified formal models.

The book provides a review of different approaches to classification, compares their performance on challenging data-sets, and draws conclusions on their applicability to realistic industrial problems. A wide variety of approaches has been taken.

We all are fascinated by the phenomena of intelligent behavior, as generated by our own brains. As physicists we want to understand if there are some general principles that govern the dynamics of the neural circuits that underlie these phenomena.
