Those notes have grown from a sequence of seminars given at Leeds among 1972 and 1975. They signify an try to assemble jointly the several forms of version that have been proposed to account for the stochastic job of neurones, and to supply an creation to this quarter of mathematical biology. A extraordinary characteristic of job of the worried procedure is that it sounds as if stochastic: this can be obvious in any respect degrees of recording, starting from intracellular recordings to the electroencephalogram. The chapters begin with fluctuations in membrane strength, continue via unmarried unit and synaptic job and finish with the behaviour of huge aggregates of neurones: L have chgaen this seque~~e\/~~';uggest that the attention-grabbing behaviourr~f :the anxious method - its individuality, variability and dynamic kinds - may perhaps partially consequence from the stochastic behaviour of its parts. i need to thank Dr. Julio Rubio for studying and commenting at the drafts, Mrs. Doris Beighton for generating the ultimate typescript and Mr. Peter Hargreaves for getting ready the figures.
