'With admirable zeal, Bielza and Larranaga have digested and summarized an entire field, the machine learning methods in computational neuroscience. The critical importance of computational tools to analyze neural data and decipher the neural code has been emphasized by the US and international BRAIN Initiatives and this book provides a sure and solid step in this direction.' Rafael Yuste, Columbia University 'Data-Driven Computational Neuroscience is an outstanding treatment of modern statistical data analysis and machine learning for neuroscience. Illustrating each method by real world use-cases, this book is unique as a hands on and comprehensive presentation of technique and analysis. The result is a fine text and resource that treats many important but less well-known aspects of the practice.' Michael Hawrylycz, Allen Institute for Brain Science 'This book provides us with an outstanding text dealing with the multiple applications in modern neuroscience of statistical and computational models learned from data. There is no doubt that new neuroscience technologies and computational neuroscience methods will make it possible to define the structural and functional design of brain circuits and to determine how these designs contribute to the functional organization of the brain. This book contains numerous examples of the current applications of computational neuroscience in various fields of neuroscience, presented in such a way that it is easily accessible to those who are not experts in the field. Therefore, the book also represents an excellent opportunity for neuroscientists from all fields to be introduced to this fascinating world of computational neuroscience, expertly guided by Concha Bielza and Pedro Larranaga - two eminent scientists specializing in computer science and artificial intelligence.'
