We review the evolution of synapse models over the last sixty-five years in terms of the changing paradigms: initially, the synapse was modelled only as part of a neuronal system, both as a number (weight of an edge in a connectionist network) and as a channel in a conductance-based model. With the availability of more structural and kinetic data, it came(More)
The aim of building mathematical models is to provide a formal structure to explain the behaviour of a whole in terms of its parts. In the particular case of neuropsychiatry, the available information upon which models are to be built is distributed over several fields of expertise. Molecular and cellular biologists, physiologists and clinicians all hold(More)
Most bioscientists engage in informal modelling in their research and explicitly document this activity's results in diagrams or "concept maps". While canonical modelling approaches such as Biochemical Systems Theory (BST) immediately allow the construction of a corresponding system of equations, the problem of determining appropriate parameter values(More)
