Calculus of Thought: Neuromorphic Logistic Regression in Cognitive Machines is a must-read for all scientists about a very simple computation method designed to simulate big-data neural processing. This book is inspired by the Calculus Ratiocinator idea of Gottfried Leibniz, which is that machine computation should be developed to simulate human cognitive processes, thus avoiding problematic subjective bias in analytic solutions to practical and scientific problems. The reduced error logistic regression (RELR) method is proposed as such a "Calculus of Thought."

Mathematical Neuroscience is a book for mathematical biologists seeking to discover the complexities of brain dynamics in an integrative way. It is the first research monograph devoted exclusively to the theory and methods of nonlinear analysis of infinite systems based on functional analysis techniques arising in modern mathematics. Neural models that describe the spatio-temporal evolution of coarse-grained variables-such as synaptic or firing rate activity in populations of neurons -and often take the form of integro-differential equations would not normally reflect an integrative approach. This book examines the solvability of infinite systems of reaction diffusion type equations in partially ordered abstract spaces. It considers various methods and techniques of nonlinear analysis, including comparison theorems, monotone iterative techniques, a truncation method, and topological fixed point methods. Infinite systems of such equations play a crucial role in the integrative aspects of neuroscience modeling. The first focused introduction to the use of nonlinear analysis with an infinite dimensional approach to theoretical neuroscienceCombines functional analysis techniques with nonlinear dynamical systems applied to the study of the brainIntroduces powerful mathematical techniques to manage the dynamics and challenges of infinite systems of equations applied to neuroscience modeling.

  • 1 Introduction (Kazunori Sango and Junji Yamauchi)
  • 2 Recent insights into molecular mechanisms that control growth factor receptor-mediated Schwann cell morphological changes during development (Yuki Miyamoto and Junji Yamauchi)
  • 3 Membrane Skeleton in Schmidt-Lanterman Incisure in Schwann cells of Peripheral Nervous System (Nobuo Terada, Yurika Saitoh, Nobuhiko Ohno, and Shinichi Ohno)
  • 4 Schwann cell-axon interactions: the molecular and metabolic link between Schwann cells and axons (Nobuhiko Ohno, Takashi Sakoh, Yurika Saitoh, Nobuo Terada, and Shinichi Ohno)
  • 5 Schwann cell-dependent regulation of peripheral nerve injury and repair (Keiichiro Susuki )
  • 6 Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (Toru Ogata)
  • 7 Expression of the transthyretin gene in Schwann cells, and familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy-mediated neurodegeneration (Tatsufumi Murakami and Yoshihide Sunada)
  • 8 Node of Ranvier disruption: a key pathophysiology in immune-mediated neuropathies (Keiichiro Susuki )
  • 9 Pathogenesis of diabetic neuropathy from the viewpoint of Schwann cell abnormalities (Koichi Kato, Eva L. Feldman, and Jiro Nakamura)
  • 10 Spontaneously immortalized adult rodent Schwann cells as valuable tools for the study of peripheral nerve degeneration and regeneration (Kazunori Sango, Masami Tsukamoto, Kazunori Utsunomiya, and Kazuhiko Watabe)
  • BM Index.
This book presents recent topics on the development, differentiation, and myelination of Schwann cells, as well as pathological mechanisms and therapeutic approaches for peripheral neuropathies, such as Charcot?Marie?Tooth diseases, amyloid polyneuropathy, immune-mediated neuropathy, and diabetic neuropathy. The rapid progress of molecular biological techniques in the last decades, especially for RNA techniques and gene modification technologies, have allowed us to investigate the pathobiology of Schwann cells in vivo and in vitro. Studies combining recent stem cell biology with recent biotechnology, which is now closely linked to physicochemical fields, further explain how Schwann cell lineages develop, a process that has long been thought to be very complicated in vivo. The findings contribute to the elucidation of fundamental mechanisms during development and under pathological conditions. We now know that these are closely tied to each other. This book also introduces unique coculture systems to reproduce the neuron Schwann cell interplay during development, degeneration, and regeneration. Up-to-date research topics with high-quality immunofluorescence and electron micrographs introduced by young and energetic contributors are sure to arouse the readers' interest in Schwann cell biology. Discussion from the viewpoint of basic and clinical neuroscience makes the book educational for researchers, medical students, and young clinicians.

Written by an international team of leading experts in neuroscience, this book presents an overview of some of the main schools of thought as well as current research trends in neuroscience. It focuses on neural top-down causation applied to hot topics like consciousness, emotions, the self and the will, action and behavior, neural networks, brains and society. A special feature of the book is pertinent presentations and lively discussions on the topic. The book provides the reader with invaluable information on what the latest research is in this field and will enable the reader to gain considerable amount of knowledge as well as hints for further enquiry. This is the first book on the topic of neuroscience and top-down causation, and is written at a level that will interest both academics and the general readers. The extensive and lively discussions included in the book offer the reader a clear idea of the research in this field, and what will emerge as the main trends.
