Actually you may well be asking too much -- I've never seen a text that
goes into that much detail as well as scope. But if you're willing to pop
for _several_ books ...
Here's what I can think of off the top of my head:
*Koch, C., Segev, I. Methods in Neuronal Modeling. MIT press, 1990 or so.
Good intro though not incredibly detailed, has lots of goos refs though.
*Jack, Noble, Tsien. Electrical Models of Excitable Cells. Cambridge press
I think, maybe Oxford.
Serious math & very detailed, but lacks the biological aspects you might want.
Heavy on channel & membrane dynamics, cable theory and the like. Pretty
*Tuckwell. Intro to Theoretical Neurobiology. MIT press, 1990 or so. Pretty
good too. Not quite the mathematical detail of J N & T, but not far off, and
goes into a bit more of the bio.
I think you'll have difficulty finding a book that covers all of your interests,
but let me know if you do because they're my interests too. Realistically I'd
go for a couple of the ones above, some recent refs, and some more biologically
oriented texts for the _real_ biology. Neural modeling is pretty sexy these
days so there's a ton of stuff out there, but lots of it is by people jumping
on the bandwagon.
