Multithreaded and Distributed Simulation of Large Biological Neuronal Networks
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4757)
To understand the principles of information processing in the brain, we depend on models with more than 105 neurons and 109 connections . These networks can be described as graphs of threshold elements that exchange point events.
