last modified Jun 15, 2015 01:28 PM

Simon Laughlin’s book (co-authored with Peter Sterling), “Principles of Neural Design” (MIT Press) is published this month in the US and will have its British launch in July.  According to Prof. David Attwell (UCL): “Time, space, energy and information: these are the key themes of this fascinating book, which takes the spirit of the Feynman Lectures on Physics and applies it to explain how the brain has been designed, by evolution, to process information efficiently.  Unique insights, recounted in the authors' characteristically appealing style, are to be found on every page.”  Further information can be found here:
