The Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks
The Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks by Michael A.Arbib
Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 1996.
In hundreds of articles by experts from around the world, and in overviews and “road maps” prepared by the editor,The Handbook of Brain Theory and Neural Networks charts the immense progress made in recent years in many specific areas related to great questions: How does the brain work? How can we build intelligent machines?
While many books discuss limited aspects of one subfield or another of brain theory and neural networks, theHandbook covers the entire sweep of topics—from detailed models of single neurons, analyses of a wide variety of biological neural networks, and connectionist studies of psychology and language, to mathematical analyses of a variety of abstract neural networks, and technological applications of adaptive, artificial neural networks.
Expository material makes the book accessible to readers with varied backgrounds while still offering a clear view of the recent, specialized research on specific topics.
“This revised *Handbook of Brain Theory* provides useful new data and and updates key concepts in neuroscience. It will be an indispensable guide for exploring the essentials of brain science.”–Masao Ito, RIKEN Brain Science InstitutePlease note: This quote is for promotional materials only, not for the book jacket.

Foreign exchange, or forex, is the conversion of one country’s currency into another.
In a free economy, a country’s currency is valued according to the laws of supply and demand.
In other words, a currency’s value can be pegged to another country’s currency, such as the U.S. dollar, or even to a basket of currencies.
A country’s currency value may also be set by the country’s government.
However, most countries float their currencies freely against those of other countries, which keeps them in constant fluctuation.
