The noisy brain stochastic dynamics as a principle of brain function

The activity of neurons in the brain is 'noisy' in that their firing times are random when they are firing at a given rate. This book explores randomness in the operation of brain cells showing how it can be advantageous in decision-making, in memory and in many other brain functions
