"Fundamentals of Computational Neuroscience introduces the theoretical foundations of neuroscience with a focus on the nature of information processing in the brain."
(taken from the back side of the book)
The book's aim is to provide an introduction to Computational Neuroscience. It is written in scientific English, which apart from being scientific reads very obscure. It is not a very pleasant way to teach oneself the foundations of this topic. If you already have a good knowledge in biology, it may be interesting. Good fundamental knowledge about linear algebra, probability theory, information theory and maybe some physics should really help to understand the book better. Also you should know some numerical integration and building derivatives.
I was reading this book for a lecture in computational neuroscience and it didn't inspire me too much. It is not very much of a text book for courses. As a bachelor student having attended lectures about the mathematical preliminaries for the book I still had problems learning the stuff. So I give it a 3.
