The introduction discusses the coverage of this book, which is about the computational neuroscience of vision. It introduces some of the background for understanding brain computation and discusses how some of the essential features of this can be captured by simple formalisms. The introduction also explores three neuronal network architectures, long-term potentiation and long-term depression, and the fine structure of the cerebral neocortex.

Keywords:   vision, computational neuroscience, brain computation, formalisms, neuronal network, long-term potentiation, long-term depression, cerebral neocortex
