Many leading neuroscientists and an increasing number of computational neuroscientists are coming to the conclusion that much of the interesting/relevant information processing which leads a neuron to spike is being done within the dendritic branches themselves before any signal reaches the neuron soma. This could be a broad description of the topic of Dendritic Computation, which I predict will grow in importance in the coming years. This discussion group can be a forum for discussing the issues, the possibilities and the impact on neuromorphic hardware that will be needed for modelling the potentially simple but highly distributed processing required to capture key features of the possible mechanisms involved.
