What is computational neuroscience, and is it good for anything?

I study differential equations models of nerve cells and brain networks. I don't think that anybody knows, at this point, whether that sort of work will prove to be a significant part of understanding the brain. I will give examples of issues I have thought and written about, mostly concerning gamma oscillations, i.e., approximately 40 Hz oscillations in electrical fields in the brain.
