Spiking neural networks

Although it has limited learning capability I was quite impressed by Eliasmith et al's computer model of the human brain, Spaun.  (see Science, vol. 338, 30 Nov. 2012, pg 1202 for example)  In order to play with spiking neurons myself I downloaded a copy of Carnevale and Hines' NEURON 7.3 simulation environment.  I have this software up and running but need to order a copy of Carnevale and Hines' book.
