One (hopefully) helpful hint: please don't confuse (as is increasingly
common) the field of computational neuroscience with " modeling
neurons", as opposed to computational modeling at all levels of the
nervous system. Clarification of the meaning of the term
"computational neuroscience" may be found in the proceedings of the
conference which first introduced the term,
and whose purpose was to provide a working definition of it. For
further discussion, see:
